"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

5 lb potatoes (about 5 large potatoes)
1 ½ lb onions (about 3 onions)
7 eggs
¾-1 cup flour
1 ½ - 1 ¾ t baking powder (I think teaspoon but double check with grandma!)
½ t pepper (plus a little extra)
1 ½ T salt

1. Measure out baking powder, pepper, salt, flour
2. Cut onions
3. Peel potatoes. Put in pot of cold water so they don’t turn brown.
4. Shred potatoes and quickly put in a bowl with the eggs to prevent browning.
5. Add remaining ingredients
6. Fry with oil until brown. Turn once.
7. Freeze. Reheat from frozen. Do not defrost. Reheat on pancake griddle to keep crispy
