  1. Place the potatoes and onion into a bowl, and stir in eggs, salt, and flour as needed to make the mixture hold together. With wet hands, scoop up about 1/3 cup of the mixture per patty, and form into flat round or oval shapes.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, and gently place the patties into the hot oil. Fry until the bottoms are golden brown and crisp, 5 to 8 minutes, then flip with a spatula and fry the other side until golden.
  3. Line a colander or strainer with 2 paper towels, and drain the cooked latkes in the colander. Serve hot.

These are very close to the original recipe. The only thing I would do would use matzo meal instead of flour. It really does make a big difference

Way too much egg for the amount of potatoes, I tried again using 1 egg and they turned out great.

I thought theses were delicious. I used a gluten free flour mix, but it took way more than two tbsp of flour to make the potatoes stick together. Also, before adding the other ingredients, I r...

This is the best latke recipe I've tried and it's the easiest too. I took others' advice and used matzo meal, as I had some on hand, and just added it until I had the consistency I wanted. I u...

Fantastic! My husband and I really enjoyed dinner tonight :) I altered the recipe to adjust to my flavor craving taste buds :) I used 2 cups total grated veggie--1.5 cups potato and half a cup o...

EXCELLANT I make this recipe with one tweak... I do not drain my potatoes, result: crisp, crispy thin patties, so crunchy & when eaten with catsup are ALMOST as good as served traditionally!

Sorry but we thought that these were bland. If I make them again I would probably tweak them and them and add some parmesan or maybe some jalapeno. Thanks for posting the recipe

These were featured on the Better Show today! So yummy. A classic latke recipe!
