Peel and grate the potatoes and onion. Mix in the egg. Combine the dry ingredients together and add to potato mixture. Drop by large tablespoons onto a heated nonstick skillet lightly coated with oil and cook for 4 minutes or so on each side, until pancakes are cooked through. Serve with applesauce, apple butter or sour cream and chives.
