I absolutely cannot resist their pancakes, but they are really pricey. Here's their recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, combine potatoes, scallion, onion, egg, flour, salt and pepper, and stir well.
  3. Heat 2 tsp oil over medium heat. Scoop potato mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, into pan and flatten slightly to make a pancake. Add as many pancakes as will fit into pan without crowding and cook 3 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining 2 tsp oil and remaining potato mixture.
  4. Bake pancakes for 5 minutes, or until cooked through and crisp.

These were easy and turned out nice and crispy. I made with thawed shredded hash brown potatoes and it worked well. Also used seasoned salt.

The BEST baked latkes ever! I used olive oil spray on the baking sheet as well. I think next time I will add garlic, because we are garlic freaks, but it was really good without it! Frying them a bit before baking gives them the edge over normal baked latkes, but I loved that they were all done at the same time! Thanks BFM =)
