1 tablespoon canola oil
2 white onions, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 Idaho potatoes, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped scallions
For a nice alternative, serve them topped with caviar, sour cream and chives. You can also make smaller ones, similar to latkes, if desired. In that case, I would add an egg and a little flour to the potato mixture.
