BEST POTATO LATKE RECIPE EVER!
- 4 medium Idaho potatoes
- 6 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoon matzoh meal
- 2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper Applesauce or sour cream(optional)
- Prepare a large bowl filled with cold water.
- Peel potatoes, and as you finish each, place in cold water to prevent browning.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Cut potatoes lengthwise into halves or quarters so they fit into food processor feed tube. Process potatoes using the blade that creates thin, shoestring-like strips. Transfer to a large bowl.
- Add eggs, matzoh meal, salt and pepper and mix well.
- Drop 6 to 8 spoonfuls of mixture into hot oil. Using the back of a spoon, pat down each latke to flatten it. Put as many as you can in the skillet without crowding. Putting them too close together will make them soggy.
- Fry 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp around the edges; repeat procedure until finished with all the batter.
- Blot excess oil with paper towels.
- Serve warm with applesauce or sour cream, if desired.
Corn meal is a great substitute for matzoh meal and will also make your latkes nice and crispy.
