This is the first time I ever commented on a recipe. I've made this recipe many times. This is absolutely one of my favorites! They are just as good when I take them from the freezer and reheat them. I find letting the potatoes drain for awhile in a colander, then twisting them in a clean towel, helps drain most of the liquid. Kittencal, your recipes rock!
As always, Kittencal's recipes are fantastic! These were great potato pancakes. Actually followed the recipe this time...not something I do often. My husband couldn't get enough!
Fabulous. I was looking for an hors d'oeuvre base on which to serve some Smoked Arctic Char. I had to substitute chick pea four for the flour as one of my guests has gluten issues. I honestly think the chick pea flour substitution improved them by adding a bit more of an earthy flavour. I only soaked my grated potatoes for 6 hours. (I didn't look up the recipe soon enough.) There was an awful lot of starch at the bottom of the bowl, let me tell you. I added 3 tsp of salt to the mixture. Next time I would only add 2 1/2 tsp as 3 was almost too much ( and I like salty). I made mini latkes. and served with sour cream, smoked arctic char, lemon and dill. Sublime. Excellent recipe Kitten. It is a keeper.
I must admit I could not wait overnight for the potatoes to soak. I waited about 1 hour, then proceeded. They came out nice and crispy! Thanks Kit, I really enjoyed these for breakfast with a little ketchup! I did quarter the recipe. Made for 123 Hit Wonder game.
Love these! Mine turned out delicious and crispy. I made just as directed and they came out perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
My family loved these! My Jewish father-in-law couldn't get enough and my six year old son was eating them right out of the grease :-) I only had 6 hours to soak them to I squeezed the starch out two times and changed the water. They were deliciously crispy. Next time I would add a lot more green onions. Awesome recipe - will definitely use again.
I was wanting a recipe for hash browns and came across this recipe.. I have stopped looking!! These were fantastic, easy and the taste surpassed what I was expecting. I hardly got them onto a plate,,, they were being attacked while still cooking and no complaints about the trees (parsley) I have frozen the remainder and had some this morning. They really cooked up as if they had just just been prepared. I can certainly see myself making more of these. Thanks Kittencal for this awesome recipe... + 5 stars from my husband!!!!
OMG, these are DELICIOUS! My only criticism will come from my New Year's Eve guests who may not get any of them tonight! They do soak up oil, so I recommend making small pancakes, well flattened and fried in VERY hot oil. Great supplement to traditional latkes for Chanukah, or anytime.
Loved these! I let them soak for 5 hours and turned out great. Only cooked half and froze the remaining. Hope they will be ok when I cook them. Loved how crispy they were. Didn't take long and served with a great BBQ steak.
you call them Latlkes.. I call them hash browns. Have tried numerous times to make hash browns and never even thought of frying them in small batches. Had no green onion and used white. They were tasty,,,,BUT...what a mess they make!!
