Cheesy Potato Latkes

2 cups grated potatoes (I use the frozen shredded hash browns, but I haven’t found them kosher in Montreal, only in the US)
1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella/cheddar blend 
1 egg
1/4 cup flour 
Salt and pepper 
Oil to fry (I use grapeseed oil)

Fill frying pan up with 1/4” of oil. 
Heat oil over medium heat until it sizzles when you put in a small piece of the mixture. You can add a carrot to the oil to help keep the oil clean. 
As the oil is heating up, mix together potatoes, cheese, egg, flour, salt and pepper. 
Form small latkes with your hands (this ensures they’ll stay together) and drop into oil. Flip once you see the edges browning. 
Remove from heat and allow to cool on cooling rack.
