Step 1

Wash, peel, and grate potatoes. Place the grated potatoes in a bowl of cold water to prevent them from turning brown.

Chop onion finely. Put onion, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper in a bowl and combine. Strain potatoes and press a dish tower over the potatoes in the strainer to ring out extra liquid and get them as dry as possible. Add the strained potatoes to the onion and flour mixture, and combine well.

In a large skillet add the olive oil and butter, heat to a low bubble. Put scoops of potato mixture in the oil and butter. Press down with a flat spatula to squish balls into a flatter pancake. Do not turn over the pancakes until the bottoms are browned. Brown both sides. Clean out skillet between batches and re-add olive oil and butter as needed for each batch.
