Potato Latkes

Prep Time: 40 minutes Cooking Time:
  • 2 lbs potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 of a vidalia onion or other sweet onion
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed or other light oil

Equipment: Grater, peeler, measuring cups & spoons, two mixing bowls and large saute pan

Peel and grate potatoes – or put into a food processor – and immediately put into cold water to help with keeping the potatoes white. When finished with all the potatoes, drain thoroughly in a cheesecloth or thin linen, and add remaining ingredients – except for oil. Form and mold the mixture into multiple palm sized patties or “pancakes” with your hands. Pour just 3 tablespoons of oil into heavy skillet and be sure to warm up oil before putting pancake in the pan. Cook on both sides until deep golden brown. Top with sour cream, apple sauce, dill, green onions, whatever you would like!
