In a move that will shock you, and rock your world to it's very core, I added the beaten egg/flour/other stuff mixture to the grated potatoes. And then used a fork to mix the two things together (Well technically, it was more than two things, but you get the idea).
At this point, I'd like to rant a tad bit about how all of the recipes I could find for potato pancakes on the web all said "X medium potatoes". What the hell is medium potato, I ask you? How about saying "X cups of shredded potato". At least then, I'd know if I had too many potatoes, which would make my potato pancakes fail!
Anyway, I happened to fluke out on the correct number of potatoes (It wasn't 3, by the way). And then I used the same measurement in my recipe, since I forgot to measure the potato when I was done. I'm always up for continuing bogus trends!
