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!
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
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.
And here are our great short-bread crew and the folks who stuck around to make sure every dish was done!!
