Potato Latkes

Potato Latkes

Made with matzo meal these Potato Latkes are perfect for Passover or anytime. Serve with applesauce and sour cream. 


4 Medium Potatoes

1 Peeled & Quartered Yellow Onion

2 Tablespoons Matzo Meal

2 Large Eggs

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Apple Sauce

Sour Cream

Peel and cut potatoes into chunks. In a food processor place 1/4 of potatoes. Add onions, eggs, matzo meal, kosher salt and pepper. Pulse until vegetables are finely chopped. Add rest of potatoes and pulse until all potatoes are finely chopped and mixture is combined. In a large-size heavy skillet heat olive oil over a medium heat. Scoop up 1/3 cup of potato mixture and place into hot oil. Fry each latke for 3 minutes per side until brown and crisp. If your potato mixture isn’t holding together well then stir in more matzo meal by the tablespoon until mixture holds. Finish making latkes with rest of potato mixture. Add additional olive oil as needed. Remove from skillet and transfer latkes to paper towels to drain excess oil. Transfer to serving plate and serve with applesauce and/or sour cream. Makes about 8 latkes
