4-5 potatoes

2 white onions

3 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

vegetable/canola oil, for frying

sour cream, garnish

apple sauce, garnish


1. Peel potatoes and place with onions in food processor. Pulse with fitted knife blade until smooth and creamy.

2. In a large bowl, combine the potato mixture with eggs, and season with salt and pepper. Add (enough) flour so that everything stays together and doesn’t fall apart.

3. In a large frying pan or deep skillet, carefully heat 1 inch of oil on medium-high heat. Gently place 1/4 cup of latke mixture into the oil and flatten a little so that it will cook evenly.

4. Cook each side until cooked through and golden brown, then transfer onto paper towels to drain.

5. Continue with the rest of latkes. Serve latkes hot, with sour cream and apple sauce.

Bon Appetit!
