Classic Potato Latkes
servings: 15 latkes using tablespoon measuring spoon
4 cups shredded potatoes (1 lb) Frozen hash browns work great! Defrost first.
1 small onion, chopped
3 T scallions, chopped
2 T flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Combine ingredients together in a large bowl. Using a tablespoon measuring spoon for bite sized latkes and an ice cream scooper for larger latkes, cook batter in batches. Frying until both sides are golden brown. Careful to heat the pan up until very hot before adding batter to it. The oil should sizzle! Be careful not to flip the latkes over until the edges are slightly browned. Enjoy with apple sauce, sour cream or some of these crazy fun latke creations I created for Hanukkah over here!
