Potato Latkes

I am sure that I have a Jewish grandmother lurking in my Swedish heritage...  we make these delicious gems any chance we get.  They are worth the effort!

Potato Latkes

  • 2 pounds yukon gold potatoes
  • ½ onion, grated
  • salt, pepper
  • olive oil

Peel potatoes and place them in a bowl of water. Hand grate or use food processor to grate potatoes.  Place grated potatoes in water.  Let potato starch settle to bottom.  Carefully scoop out potato.  Pour off water but save the potato starch that has settled.  Add starch back to potatoes.

Heat oil in non-stick saucepan.  Use about ½ cup potato and 1 teaspoon onion per batch.  Place three piles of potato in hot pan, flatten with fork.  Cook about 5 minutes per side.  Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Yum, yum!
