1. Assemble the Cuisinart® Food Processor fitted with the continuous feed attachment. Place the medium shredding disc over the stem adapter.
2. Place a large mixing bowl on the counter under the chute to catch the shredded potatoes.
3. Shred the potatoes on High. Transfer the shredded potatoes to a clean tea towel. Squeeze the towel to remove excess liquid from the potatoes and then return to the mixing bowl. Reserve.
4. Replace the shredding disc with the fine slicing disc. Place the bowl with potatoes under the chute. Add the scallion to the small feed tube and process on High. Add the salt and pepper and mix together to evenly distribute ingredients.
5. Divide the potato mixture evenly into 4 portions. Use your hands to form the mixture
into patties.
6. Put the oil in a large, heavy skillet and place over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering and a small piece of potato sizzles immediately upon contact, carefully place each patty in the pan.
Cook for about 3 minutes, undisturbed, and then carefully flip and cook for 3 more minutes. Adjust the heat as necessary so that the patties are constantly sizzling.
7. Once finished, transfer the patties to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, and then serve.
