Potato Latkes

Potato Latkes

Found on smittenkitchen.com


1 large baking potato (1 pound), peeled
1 small onion (4 ounces), peeled
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Peanut oil, for frying


1.    In a food processor or on a box grater, coarsely shred the potato and onion. For longer strands, lay the potato sideways in the chute of your food processor.

2.    Put in a colander, paper towel, or cheese cloth to dry out.  Let stand for 2 minutes, then squeeze dry again.

3.    In a large bowl, whisk the flour, egg, salt and pepper together.

4.     Stir in the potato onion mixture until all pieces are evenly coated.

5.    In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil until shimmering.

6.     Drop packed teaspoons of the potato mixture into the skillet and flatten them with the back of a spoon.

7.    Cook the latkes over moderately high heat until the edges are golden, about 1 1/2 minutes; flip and cook until golden on the bottom, about 1 minute.

8.    Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.
