Recipe

Perfect Potato Latkes

Times

  • Ready Time : 0 min

Servings

60 3-inch latkes

Ingredients

  • one 32 oz bottle of safflower or canola oil
  • 10 lbs potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup flower or matzo meal

Directions

1 Heat two large frying pans over medium heat. Add oil to the depth of 1/4 inch. Let the oil heat over low heat as you mix the latkes.
2 Wash and scrub the potatoes if you want to keep the skins on, or peel them. Grate the potatoes. This is easiest to do in a food processor, but can also be done with a hand grater. Grate the onions and mix with the potatoes in a large bowl. In a seperate bowl lightly beat the eggs and salt.
3 Add to the potatoes and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and mix in.
4 Turn the heat under the oil to medium. The oil is ready when a bit of potato dropped init sizzle. Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop up the batter. Drop it into the hot oil and flatten with the back of a spatula.
5 Cook the latkes until golden brown on one side, about 4 to 5 minutes, then flip over and cook the second side until golden, another 3 to 4 minutes. When ready, remove to a plate covered with a layer of paper towels to absorb the oil.
6 Serve immediately or keep warm in a low oven (200F) until ready to serve.
7 Serve latkes with bowls of sour cream or applesauce.
