Stuffed Latke Base Recipe


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min




  • 5 Idaho potatoes
  • 1 Spanish onion
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of flour (optional)*
  • Oil for frying
  • Latke Stuffing of Choice see bottom of recipe


1 Grate the potatoes and onion using a food processor or hand grater. Add eggs, salt and pepper to mixture.  Then add flour (optional)*.
2 In a large frying pan, heat ½ inch oil on medium/high heat. It is important to make sure that the oil is hot enough to crisp up the potatoes but not too hot that the potatoes will burn.
3 Place a heaping spoonful of latke mix into the pan.  The latkes should sizzle and crisp up quickly.
4 Once latke gets crisp, place filling inside (choose filling below).
5 Top with another spoonful of latke mix on top of filling and make sure that the potato mix on top of the filling completely covers the filling.
6 Flip over and fry for about a minute.
7 Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.

*A note about the flour: flour helps the latkes obtain a firmer consistency, but it isn’t necessary for the taste and presentation of latkes.
