Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin
Latkes are traditionally made with grated potatoes and fried. Baking instead of frying these mini pancakes makes this appetizer a lot healthier. They can also be made ahead and reheated. Serve with maple dip or bottled salsa. This recipe came from one of local newspapers.

- 1 large egg
