Besides, if I only stuck to my roots I would be stuck with bangers and mash, and I know that would get old quick.

These potato latkes were yummy, came together quickly and Handsome totally had the right idea about using them again for breakfast. Our 2 large potatoes made about 12 latkes, so there were plenty of leftovers.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sour Cream
  • Chives or dill

Preparation:

Grate potatoes into a bowl. Add onions, egg, flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Brush a large skillet with oil and heat over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Drop as many 1/8-cup measures of potato mixture into skillet or a griddle as possible to fit on a skillet leaving enough space between each one. Flatten with a spatula into 1/4-inch-thick pancakes.

Cook latkes 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked through. Serve with sour cream and dill and/or chives.

I hope everyone is having a great time either sharing their holiday traditions or getting ready for them this time of year. Our house is in a frantic drive to finish up some projects and clean before people start to come over for festivities.

These latkes look so yummy! Like you, I made these Saturday night, though my family isn't even a little bit Jewish. The recipe I used was very similar, but I think your's turned out better. I used a 1/4 cup scoop and it was too much per pancake. Good cooking and great pictures!

Happy SITS Day!
