Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 Read More

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

Very excellent recipe! Worked wonderfully turned out very tasty & crisp. Only thing I will say is I had to use a LOT more than 2 tablespoons of flour- though that could just be my preference. I was very pleased with how this turned out they taste just like I remember them.:) Read More

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 rinsed the potatoes and onions in water and let drain so some of the the starch was removed. I used to see both my grandmothers do this. Read More

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 usually drain the potatoes and onions but decided not to. It left the mix really soupy but I just grabbed a bunch of mix and squeezed the excess liquid out. By keeping it all in the liquid it actually kept the mixture from turning that ugly brown that it usually does. Needless to say I've found my new recipe that I will use from here on out! My husband tasted and said they are the best I've ever made! Read More

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 of grated zucchini only used two eggs didn't bother to dry off the grated mix (added just a touch more flour instead) added a bit of nutmeg to the mix as well as some pepper and onion powder. Reduced the salt to 1 tsp. served with nonfat plain yogurt instead of sour cream as it was what I had in the fridge. I can highly recommend this dish! Read More

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! Read More

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 Read More

I love this recipe! It always pleases a crowd I usually make the recipe as is but on occasion I add shredded cheddar to it. It's amazing! Read More
