5 cups peeled and shredded potatoes
2 tablespoons and 1-1/2 teaspoons grated onion
7-1/2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups peanut oil

Place the potatoes in a cheesecloth and wring, extracting
as much moisture as possible.
In a medium bowl stir the potatoes, onion, eggs, flour and
salt together.
In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat,
heat the oil until hot. Place large spoonfuls of the potato
mixture into the hot oil, pressing down on them to form
1/4 to 1/2 inch thick patties. Brown on one side, turn and
brown on the other. Let drain on paper towels. Serve hot!
