Latkes (potato pancakes) are a traditional food at Chanukah. We enjoy making them as well as eating them!
1479 per serving
- 4 large potatoes
- 1 small onion
- 1 apple, peeled and cored
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- salt and pepper
- peanut oil, or alternative, for frying
Cut potatoes, apples, and onions into quarters and feed into your food processor tube. (I used my new Kenmore Elite food processor. What a pleasure - and cleanup was a cinch!) Let the grated potatoes sit for about a half hour in a metal bowl, then drain the excess liquid.
Mix all ingredients together. Heat oil; put heaping mounds of potato mixture into the pan, and fry on both sides until crispy brown.
Place pancakes on a platter lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve with applesauce or sour cream. Enjoy!
