"I have been making these for over 20 years, I usually get about 15 patties but it depends on the size of the batter that you drop in the pan, these are better if fried to very brown and crispy, you can make a double recipe, fry them then freeze them on a tray then pop them into freezer bags, then just warm them in the oven to crisp up, they are very addicting and I can tell you I eat half before they even get to the table lol! If you plan on doubling the recipe then make two separate recipes in two bowls, I have doubled the recipe into one bowl and for some reason they just are not as good --- if desired you could add in a slightly beaten large egg and reduce the milk by 1/4 cup --- you will *love* these! also see my Kittencal's Crispy Potato and Green Onion Pancakes (Latkes) *and* Kittencal's Italian Zucchini-Mozzarella Patties"

"These were very good. I didn't have any green onion so I didn't put that in. As I was making it, I realized that I was pretty much making onion rings except the onions were chopped up and not in rings. I will never make onion rings again, cause these were much easier and faster - yet tasted the same. I also made a spicy dip to go with them by mixing Miracle Whip, horseradish, and cayenne pepper together. It tasted like the sauce at the restaurants for their onion blossoms."
"These were quite good a little pancake like another reviewer mentioned but probably that was because of how much batter was used in relation to onion. They still didn't get as crispy as I would have liked but again I think that may have been the amount of batter. I made them gluten free using Recipe #256259. I think the green onion would have been good in these and would add it if I make these again. I used regular white/yellow cooking onions, white sugar, gf baking powder, garlic salt, pinch cayenne, plain rice milk, & canola oil."
"Great recipe; I tried popping these in the oven as another reviewer had suggested (15 minutes on one side, then 10 minutes on the other). To my dismay, the batter felt thin when I spooned them onto the cool, oiled baking sheet. Upon turning them, I found that the oil hadn't been absorbed and rather clung onto the patties, which felt more like crepes with their thin edges. Once the patties were done cooking, I popped them onto a hot skillet; that helped a bit with the texture. As I would like to limit the calorie intake in my household, I think I'll try the baked version again but up the flour content and shorten the baking time and finish cooking on a skillet next time. Also, I found the patties a tad sweet for my taste (I did not use sweet onions - not easy to find in my new home above the Arctic Circle) so I might lower the sugar by 1/2 a tablespoon next time."
"I needed to find a way to use up masses of green onions I chopped for anther recipe, but didn't use. I've made these exactly as written before and have them 5 stars. Decided I could use kittencals recipe as a base. So, used all green onions, and all I had was rice milk, so that's what I used. I had a little cold white rice in the fridge, so just sprinkled 1/4 cup in too. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. It was great. Might just use rice milk again and save a few calories! Hee hee..not that a few calories will matter in this wonderful fried recipe."
"Update: Still delicious. Thick thick batter, I am not sure why a few have difficulty with it, use dry and wet measuring cups and the milk is just enough to moisten the batter. oh were these good. (are..im still eating them lol) Thanks so much for the recipe. Made for the zaar cookbooks game"
"Been meaning to try this recipe for years. Glad I finally did.
I fried heaping teaspoons of the batter an they came out more like little fritters. Added a pinch of cayenne. They taste like onion rings or maybe an onion blossom. Next time I will maybe serve them with some kind of creamy dip."
"Very good!! Made a bunch and put them in the freezer ...... looking forward to seeing how they taste warmed up. Will be making these again, many times! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I'm not going to rate stars for this. I cannot seem to get over the baking powder."
"YUM!! I am not Jewish, but was invited to a Hanukkah celebration and needed a traditional dish that not everyone else would bring. I thought these looked yummy and very easy to make. These were amazing! And, so easy! Thanks!"
"I know you don't need another 5 star review, but I couldn't let it go without thanking Kitten for ANOTHER great recipe!! Because of all of the people who thought the batter was a little thin I went with 2/3 cup milk as a precaution but I don't think it would have been necessary. I will note that I made a few for us to taste to see if we were even going to like them...obviously we did...then waited another 1/2 hour or so to make the rest. It did seem like the batter was a little thinner after sitting awhile. Perhaps this was the problem some of the reviewers had. I served with Blooming Onion sauce # 70382. We'll be doing this again and again!! I'm anxious to see if they reheat as well as everyone says they do."
"anything fried is good."
"We love these. The only problem is getting them to the table. It's hard not to keep eating them all up while cooking the batches. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Just made w/fresh seasonal Vidalia onion - did add a little "Simply Potatos" hash browns - they crisped nicely - so glad the FIRST Vidalias of the season are now out"
"I made these over the weekend. I yielded about 15. By the time it came to serve them, I had three left! OMG!!! Addicting and fabulous. Followed the recipe EXACTLY as written. Kitten, you are amazing. Thank you for yet ANOTHER magical recipe."
"Wow these were amazing . We couldnt stop eating these. Thanks x"
"Absolutely delicious!! Definitely a new favorite. Just as good out of the freezer as out of the pan."
"We made these with steaks and cauliflower for dinner and they were delish! My husband tried to get me to use olive oil, but I told him we ought not mess around with Kittencal's detailed instructions - and thank goodness we didn't! These were definitely fantastic - I would love to find a way to lighten them up though, maybe using a light cooking spray instead of oil? Anyway - great recipe!!"
"As usual another fabulous recipe. I made some for my daughter and her husband. When I asked how they liked them she told me she loved them but didn't know if he did. Then she confessed, she had eaten them all so he didn't get a taste. lol. I'm doubling the recipe today."
"very good everyone loved. left me with a tad bit of bad breath after wards, I may try frying the onions for just one or two minutes before adding to the batter next time. This makes an excellent side to fish."
"I thought my DS14 was going to come right out of his skin when he took his first bite of these wonderful latkes last night! LOL. When he finally stopped raving on and on about how very good they were, I asked him what he wanted to rate them. In a very passionate voice (one that's also changing with his age) he says, FIVE HUNDRED and SIXTY-FIVE!!! And if that weren't enough...hubby comes home from a late meeting and I make a fresh round of latkes. He proceeds to go on and on at about the same rate as son had done and firmly "suggests" that I will be cooking more of these wonderful gems in the near future! (-: Made for ZWT 5. Could have been easier or yummier."
