    These are delicious served plain with a bit of salt sprinkled on them or traditionally with apple sauce or sour cream. Serving size is approximate. You may grate potatoes if you like, but we prefer them chopped.

      WOW!!! Just like I remembered when i was a little girl! These were PERFECT! My family loved these. We paired them with prime rib and asparagus. AWESOME! These are so easy to make, and they ARE the real thing. The directions didn't mention squeezing out the liquid.......I put the onion and potato mixture in a tea towel and squeezed the daylights outta it to get out as much liquid as possible. I was always taught that was the secret to perfect latkes. Thank you for positing this recipe. No changes other than the liquid squeezing. :-)

      Potato Latkes are something I've loved since I was knee high and your recipe makes it a cinch to make. Thank you so much Dojemi. I make these often. I could eat these for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. My favorite way is with applesauce. Oh yum. And the crispier the better. Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.
