PostHeaderIcon Side Dish Sunday: Potato Latkes

  • 3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 whole egg, plus 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Grate potatoes and place in strainer or colander. Squeeze out as much moisture from potatoes as you can. In a large bowl, combine potatoes with all remaining ingredients, except oil.

Heat about 1/4 cup oil in large frying pan until very hot. Drop 2 to 3 tablespoons potato mixture into pan for each latke. Use back of spoon to flatten mixture so that each latke is about 3 inches in diameter. Fry over medium high heat about 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Drain on paper towels and keep warm in a 250°F oven.

Continue, using more oil if necessary for each batch. Serve hot with applesauce if desired.
