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.

These were delicious! I made half the recipe for my daughter and I and served them with apple sauce. We made pigs of ourselves! I don't know what the baking powder added but I wouldn't leave it out or change anything else about them because they are great just the way they are.

These were so good. I've been trying to find a recipe close to the fast food hash browns. These are better though!

Wonderful! They came out perfect. Have tried several recipe's and none came out perfect, even the first one! Thanks so much. I went thru your recipe's and made a meal from several of them! Thanks so much for a "perfect" Latke recipe! Served with Sour cream and Applesauce. Yum
