Directions

Step 1 

Grate the potatoes using a hand grater with large holes. Place grated potatoes in a large bowl and cover with cold water.

Step 2 

Grate the onion using the large holes on the hand grater.

Step 3 

Drain the potato. Rinse and dry the bowl. Place the drained potato and shredded onion in a clean tea towel. Wrap in the towel and twist the cloth to secure. Squeeze firmly to remove as much liquid as possible from the potato and onion.

Step 4 

Place the potato in the bowl. Add the egg, cornstarch, salt, pepper, and breadcrumbs and mix to combine.

Step 5 

Heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of oil. Use a 1/3 cup measure to scoop the potato mixture into your hands, and press and form into a patty.

Step 6 

Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture and the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.

Step 7 

Serve with apple sauce or a fried egg for a delicious breakfast.
