  • Preheat your oven to 400ºF
  • Prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
  • Take a strainer and line it with paper towels. Place the potatoes and onions in the strainer and press out any excess water.
  • In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, onions, scallions, flour, thyme, egg, salt, and pepper. Gently toss to combine.
  • Using a ¼-cup measure, scoop the potato mixture into your hands. Form each scoop into a round pancake that is 3-inches in diameter and about ¼-inch thick.
  • Place the pancakes onto the prepared baking sheets. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have eight pancakes on each sheet.
  • Coat the pancakes with cooking spray.
  • Bake the pancakes for 10 minutes, then remove them from the oven.
  • Flip the pancakes over, coat them with cooking spray, and rotate the pans in the oven.
  • Bake the pancakes for an additional 10 minutes, then rotate the pans in the oven again.
  • Continue baking until the pancakes are well-browned, which should take about 10 more minutes.
  • Remove the potato pancakes from the baking sheets and place them on a serving platter.
  • If desired, sprinkle lightly with additional kosher salt before serving.
