Super Simple Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

Recipe by LizP5885
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 9 Latkes




  • Defrost grated potatoes in a medium-size colander. Press with paper towels to remove excess moisture. There won't be much.
  • Add onion, eggs, salt, pepper and flour. Mixture should be thick and cohesive.
  • Pour about 1/4 inch of oil into a heavy-bottomed frying pan. I use an electric frying pan at 375 so it doesn't get too hot and burn the latkes.
  • Use about 2 Tablespoons potato mixture and place in the oil and press into a patty.
  • Fry for about 3 minutes. Flip and fry for another 3 or so minutes. If pancake cooks too fast, reduce oil's temperature. If it takes longer, turn the oil up so they don't get soggy. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve immediately, or keep in a 250 oven on a baking sheet.
