Baked Potato Latkes

Recipe by  

"We love to eat potato skins, but I got tired of just using the starch that we scooped out for mashed potatoes. I thought: 'Hmmm, latkes, that could be interesting.' So I tooled around with a the basics of latkes until I had a recipe that I liked. They were such a hit with the family that it's been a staple ever since."

Directions

  1. Pour potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, ground peppercorns, flour, and eggs into a bowl, respectively. Fold mixture together with a rubber spatula until ingredients are well coated with egg and garlic, salt, and pepper are evenly mixed throughout. Break up any large potato chunks.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Form latke dough into baseball-size balls and flatten into 1-inch thick rounds.
  4. Working in batches, place latkes in hot oil and cook until edges are a rich brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip latkes using a slotted spoon and cook until crisp and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool.

For as simple as the ingredients sound, these were delicious! I did use leftover mashed potatoes that were mashed w/ butter, milk and s&p, so I had to add a bit more flour. These were super flavorful with a nice, crisp outside, and creamy goodness inside. I made these smaller than called for so the kids wouldn't have a hard time handling them. I will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I have used this recipe (almost identical) before and it's good, but it was very disappointing and felt misled when the title says BAKED, then I found out is the same old thing. I can not give it a better rating, because there is not baking involved.
