Chia, these latkes are excellent and so easy to make! They were crisp and tasted delicious. I made them exactly according to the recipe and served them with applesauce. I plan to try sock-monster's suggestion and substitute sweet potatoes next time. I really like this recipe because these latkes are much lower in fat and calories than traditional latkes. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe.

These tasted fabulous, but I had a lot of issues with moisture. As an individual who has never made these, I wasnt aware that i should drain excess moisture from the grated potatoes. I discussed the issue with chia though, and I know better for next time. These are spectacular...and definitely better for me too ;-) I'll be making these again!!! I may play with the ingredients so I can have them more often LOL...just a little different each time.. tee hee

These are definitely 5 star plus. I made them for Breakfast. Delicious served with sour cream.I made them just like the recipe said,but, baked them on convection at 425. That way it didn't take as long to bake. recipe is a keeper, My Dh loved them.

Not quite as crunchy as the fried version, but very tasty. I'll try making them thinner next time to get more crunch. My picky kid couldn't tell the difference. Thanks for the recipe!

Loved this recipe b/c of the baking process. They were simple to prepare and tasted great too. We served them with butter and applesauce. Thankyou for sharing.

Great! So easy and less mess than frying. I only had 1 1/2 lbs of potatoes but left everything else the same. They weren't exactly the same as frying but they were just as good. I'll make them again, maybe even when it isn't Chanukah ;)

i used half zucchini and half potato to make this a little healthier and added a bit of low fat cheddar, parmesan, garlic, and dill. ended up with way more then 2lbs total of potato and zucchini so i made this as a 1 1/2 batch. had to add quite a bit more flour to make it not a soup. even though i greased the pans really well they stuck really badly but that might have been due to the cheese. perhaps i'll use parchment paper next time but these were really good!

very delicious. I used egg beaters instead of eggs to bring the fat down even more and also whole wheat matzah meal. They didn't really have the consistency of the classical latke - more like a dense kugle. But we enjoyed them very much anyway - especially since there were no genuine latekes to "out" the imposters!

DH(who is not Jewish)made 300 for our synagogue Hanukah party. A professional caterer's latkes were left on the serving platter and these were inhaled!!!!! DH was already told to make 600 for next year. A 10 star recipe according to Rabbi Sam.
