Potato Pancakes (Latkes)



  1. Grate potato and chop onion (food processor recommended for this bit). In a large bowl, mix potato, onion, eggs, and salt.
  2. Heat a little bit of olive oil in a frying pan (even if the pan is nonstick–the oil helps with the flavor).
  3. Spoon fairly small amounts of the potato batter onto the fan and flatten into pancakes about 3″ across and 1/4″ thick. Fry until golden-brown, flipping to cook both sides.

Applesauce and sour cream are traditional accompaniments, but I’m serious about the maple syrup–it balances the onion beautifully. They’re also good with jam or fruit syrups.
