These are a little greasier than our average favorite snack foods, but delicious! (Of course!) With a nonstick griddle, they could be even better! 

1 large baking potato (1 pound), unpeeled
1 small onion
1/4 cup flour
1 large egg
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Oil for frying

Chop the onion into small pieces and grate the potato. (Great job for manly hands... see below.)  Wrap the potato in cheese cloth and squeeze as much liquid out as possible. (Any lint-free towel will work.)

In a  bowl, mix the flour, egg, salt and pepper together. Stir in the potato-onion mixture until all pieces are coated.

In a skillet (or whatever heatable piece of metal that is available in your country), heat 1 tablespoon of oil until shimmering, shining, and glistening. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto the griddle, flatten, cook 1.5 minutes, flip, cook some more, and voila! A latke treat for all!
