READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

Supposedly this came from an issue of TV Guide. Not to be eaten with "Lamb Chop". ;-)

Most other latke recipes tell you to squeeze or drain excess liquid from the potatoes. I squeezed them. The latkes (even after spraying) were hard to flip. They were stuck to the pan. They were a bit dry - maybe too much wheat germ. Maybe 2 whole eggs would help? And the onion flavor seemed strong (it had a raw onion taste.) I think I might try it with less onions and wheat germ (maybe half) and add some garlic or other flavor (personal pref.) I doubled the recipe and made 17 latkes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 deg F.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients into a batter.
  3. Coat two baking sheets with oil spray.
  4. Drop 1/4-cup cupfuls of batter onto the prepared sheets; press the pancakes down with the back of your dampened hand.
  5. Bake 15 minutes; then turn and bake 10 minutes longer, or until latkes are browned all over (but not blackened at edges).
  6. Serve with applesauce or sour cream.
