You can't go wrong with fried potatoes! I've never made latkes before, but these were really easy to make and delicious. I made them gluten-free using a GF all-purpose flour and added an extra egg to get them to stick together better. We enjoyed these with a dollop of sour cream.
Easy AND delicious!
Our prepackaged potatoes only came in 20 oz pkgs., so I added a grated medium potato to my mix. These turned out just right. Not too eggy, crisp on the outside, tender on the inside. I'd post a picture but....we ate them ALL.
I've tried this with the bagged shredded potatoes but not nearly as good, unfortunately, as shredding my own. Not sure why but perhaps the bagged shredded potatoes have a coating on them which makes them not get as soft and then crunchy in the frying pan. Wish it was as good, because its much easier!!
Reading the recipe I realized that this is exactly how I make mine. Always a success, only addition is that you may find you'll need to add a bit of oil after the first batch. If you do add oil be sure to allow time for oil to come back to desired heat before adding latkes.
