Hannukah Latkes

The Tenth Street Dinner club celebrated a mish mash of holiday traditions starting with the stellar crispy potato fritter stars of Hannukah – LATKES.

These are a totally cheap side dish or main dish for any brunch or dinner. Serve with apple sauce and/or sour cream and chives.

Thanks to Simon for endless flipping and frying in hot oil and Rino made most of the batter but had never peeled or grated a potato before!

Ingredients:

2 cups peeled and shredded potatoes

1 tablespoon grated onion

3 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup peanut oil for frying

 Directions

 1. Grate the potatoes and wring them out by hand or through a cheese cloth, extracting as much moisture as possible.

2. In a medium bowl stir the potatoes, onion, eggs, flour and salt together.

3. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until hot. Place large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, pressing down on them to form 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick patties. Brown on one side, turn and brown on the other. Let drain on paper towels. Serve hot with applesauce or sour cream.
