Potato-Onion Latke

I've also made this in a pyrex casserole, but you can't finish it on the stove, and it's a bit trickier to release it from the pan.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 2 1/2 T Olive oil
  • 1 med onion, peeled and sliced thin
  • 3 large baking potatoes, peeled
  • 1 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t ground pepper



1 Preheat oven to 400.
2 Heeat 1 T of oil in a frying pan, and saute the onions until golden brown.
3 Cut the potatoes across into very thin slices and place in a bowl with the remaining oil.
4 Heavily grease a 10 inch non stick or cast iron baking pan or oven proof skillet. Layer the potatoes, salt & pepper and onions. Make a total of three layers of potatoes with two of the onions.
5 Bake until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp, about 30 min. If the potatoes are done and it is not brown on the bottom, if it”s a skillet, you can finish on the stove.
6 Loosen the side and slide onto a dish.

    I made this tonight. It was very good though I think the name of the recipe is deceiving. I woun’nt really describe it as latkes. I cut everything up in my food processor, so putting it together was very easy. I made it in a square Pyrex dish. It took between 45 -60 minutes. It looked pretty enough for a company dish,but did stick a little to the bottom of my dish even though I put in a good amount of oil.

      Made it for dinner tonight. It’s not really “latkes”, but delicious, all the same. Had to bake it for 60 minutes; next time so that there is no “sticking” to the bottom of the dish, I will line with parchment paper.

    I agree, not exactly a latke, but much easier and less hands on time to make than individual pancakes. It was a hit with my whole family, which is rare, no leftovers! I do wish the recipe had directed me to cut the onion in half and then into thin slices. Smaller pieces of onion would have been easier to spread on the potato.

    Definitely not a latke … more like a kugel … but regardless of what it’s called, it’s delicious. I made it last night. The preparation was fast and easy (I diced the onions).

    We had this for dinner. It was easy to make and tasted great. It was the perfect food to round out a meal with a hearty soup. It most definitely is more of a potato casserole, not a latke. My family wanted to make sure that I really knew what a latke was, because they want the real deal for Chanukah.

    Making this for shabbos instead of potatoe kugal will let you know.

  6. Made this for Shabbat and I agree with the other commenters that it wasn’t really a like, but good all the same. I cut the potatoes in the food processor so they came out really thin but got somewhat discolored in the baking, which I find happens sometimes when I cut them really thin. Does anyone else have that problem?

  7. I made this for shabbos instead of potato kugel. It was nothing a latke, but it was pretty good. Not too exciting, but it you like potatoes then it was good.

    I made this for shabbos and yay I don’t have to make kugel every week I could make this sometimes. Next time I’m going to try adding 2 eggs to see if I flip it out if it will hold together

    This was great! I changed it up a bit by using the food processor, but it was definitely simple and yummy. Served it with sour cream (we are used to a fleishik meal, nice to take a break to choose our toppings now and again!!) and it came out nicely.
