Potato and Parsnip Latkes


  • Prep Time : 15 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 50 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 5 min




  • 2 medium russet potatoes, about 1 1/2-pounds, peeled and shredded
  • 2 cups shredded parsnip, packed
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried thyme
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon large flake sea salt



  1. In a large bowl, combine potato, parsnip, egg, matzo meal, thyme and garlic powder. Stir until all ingredients are combined.

    I made this for supper tonight but instead of making them using a 1/4 oz cup I divided into four so that I saw able to serve it under the chicken fried portobello steak and chived eggs. It looked and tasted really good.

    These were my favorite latkes this past Hanukkah, what am I saying these are simply the BEST EVER.
