The Best Latke Recipe!

Who doesn't love a crispy potato latke? Follow my recipe and you'll get a crispy result every time! Prepare ahead and reheat. If they start crispy, they will reheat to crispy!

Ingredients You Need:

Potatoes, onions, eggs, baking powder, matzo meal, salt, white and black pepper, parsley, oil.

Grate the potatoes and onions in a food processor or by hand.  (I use the food processor, some people hand grate.)

1

Squeeze as much liquid out of the potato/onion mixture as you can. Use cheesecloth to help squeeze it all out.

2

Discard the strained liquid but keep the potato starch that accumulates at the bottom of the bowl. Add it to your batter.

3

In a separate bowl mix the eggs, baking powder, matzo meal, white and black pepper, salt, and parsley.

4

In a large bowl combine the egg mixture with the reserved potato starch and drained potatoes and onions.

5

Heat one 10- or 12-inch frying pan on the stove top with a ¼ – ½ inch of oil in it. Bring the oil temp to about 360°F.

6

Scoop in some batter, flatten each one and be sure not to crowd them. The oil temp will drop the more you add.

7

Turn them over when nearly burnt on one side and let the other side cook. Remove to a paper-towel-lined sheet pan.

8

Pro-tip: Salt them as soon as you remove them from the pan - it's the magic finishing touch!

9

Serve with applesauce and sour cream, or something new like cranberry jam.
