Directions:
Shred enough potatoes to measure 4 cups. Rinse well; drain and pat dry.
Mix potatoes, eggs, onion, flour and salt. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in 12 inch skillet over medium heat. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter into skillet. Flatten each with spatula into pancake about 4 inches in diameter.
Cook pancakes about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Cover to keep warm while cooking remaining pancakes. Repeat with remaining batter; as batter stands, liquid and potatoes will separate, so stir to mix as necessary. Add remaining oil as needed to prevent sticking.
