  • 2 medium russet potatoes (finely grated)
  • 1 egg 
  • cup yellow or white onion (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp flour  
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • canola oil
  • 1 egg (for frying)
  • ½ avocado (for topping)


  • Drain liquid from potatoes. In a large bowl, add potatoes, egg, onion, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well.
  • In a cast iron skillet, heat ⅛" oil over medium heat. Drop ¼ cup batter in, press lightly to flatten. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to paper towels to drain; season immediately with salt and pepper.
  • Top with fried egg, avocado, salt and pepper.


Pro-Tip: You can also top with green onion, parsley or sour cream. 
Equipment: I use the Lodge Pre-Seasoned 12″ Cast Iron Skillet (View on Amazon). It helps to make the potato pancakes super crispy.
