Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Spread oil evenly over two large sheet pans and place in cold oven. Preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. While oven is heating, shred the potatoes on a box grater or in a food processor. In a dish towel or through a fine mesh strainer, drain any excess liquid from the grated potatoes.
  3. To a large bowl, add grated potatoes, egg, flour, salt and pepper. Mix together with your hands or a wooden spoon.
  4. Carefully remove the pans from the oven with oven mitts. Place 2 heaping tablespoon portions of the potato mixture onto the pans, spacing them (about 12 to a pan.) Flatten with a spatula.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and then flip. Bake for another 10 minutes or until crispy on the outside and baked through. Serve immediately with sour cream and/or applesauce.
