  1. Place potatoes, shallots and egg in a food processor and grate; transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a nonstick skillet; spoon 2 or more tablespoons of potato mixture into pan for each pancake; thickness and diameter will depend on how they are to be used.
  3. Cook until golden brown, turning frequently; drain on paper towels and serve warm; if pancakes are more than 1/4" thick, after sauteing, place them on a baking sheet and into a 325° oven for 5-10 minutes.
