Potato LatkesPosted: Updated:
Chef Aaron May from Over Easy demonstrates how to make potato latkes.
4 or 5 large potatoes, grated
1 medium onion, grated
1 or 2 large eggs, beaten well
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
Oil for frying
Potato starch, as needed
Grate potatoes and onions and mix well together. Pour the mixture through a strainer to drain off all excess liquid.
Combine mixture with egg and seasoning. If the mixture is loose, add potato starch as need.
Fry the latkes over a slow heat about 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Serve with applesauce and/or sour cream.
