Makes: 10 servings/latkes Total Time: 30 min
Category: Breakfast/Brunch Sub Category: Pancakes/Waffles

what you need
  • 4 medium potatoes, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • Sour cream, applesauce, or ketchup (optional)
make it
1. Peel and finely shred potatoes and onions. In a mixing bowl combine potatoes and onions with olive oil, eggs, garlic (if desired), and salt. Using 1/3 cup mixture for each latke, press mixture into patties about the size of the palm of your hand, squeezing out excess liquid.

2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Carefully slide patties into hot oil.

3. Cook over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or until latkes are golden brown, turning once.

4. Repeat with remaining batter. Add cooking additional oil during cooking, as needed.

5. If necessary, reduce heat to medium to prevent over-browning. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Serve with sour cream, applesauce, and/or ketchup, if desired.
