French Onion Potato Latkes

These are delicious without the cheese too, but if you like Gruyere and French onion soup you will love these.


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4-6 servings


  • 3 large yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 .5 lb potatoes, cleaned
  • 3/4 cups matzo meal
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded gruyere



1 Fry the onions in the oil on low heat until caramelized at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2 Grate the potatoes in the food processor and place in a large towel. Squeeze out all the water from the potatoes into a small bowl, allow to settle for 10 minutes.
3 In a large bowl, combine the grated potatoes with the caramelized onions, eggs, cheese, matzoh meal and salt and pepper. Mix until all combined.
4 Heat frying pan with a layer of oil. Once hot drop large tablespoonfuls of potato mixture and flatten with spatula. After a few minutes flip to cook both sides until golden. If they are not sticking together well, add more eggs to the rest of the batter.
5 You can cook them ahead and bake in a 350 degree F oven until heated through around 10 minutes.

    Wonderful! The gruyere doesn’t come through very strongly so if you wanted to leave it out for a meat meal you could still make these.

    What is 4-6 servings considered? How many does this make altogether?

    • Depends on how big you make them, but it should make around 20-30 latke and actually should serve more than 4-6.
