8 medium potatoes
1 large onion
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup flour
Crisco or vegetable oil for frying
Peel potatoes - it's okay to leave a little skin on. Into a large bowl, coarsely grate potatoes and peeled onion.
Begin heating Crisco or oil in large frying pan on stove.
Separate eggs, dropping yolks into bowl with shredded potatoes. In small bowl, whip egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into potato bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic.
Add just enough flour to soak up water from potatoes. Drop batter into the hot oil of the frying pan and fry until both sides are browned.
Serve warm with applesauce.
