potatoes, peeled and shredded
all-purpose flour, or as needed
These are very close to the original recipe. The only thing I would do would use matzo meal instead of flour. It really does make a big difference
Way too much egg for the amount of potatoes, I tried again using 1 egg and they turned out great.
Very excellent recipe! Worked wonderfully, turned out very tasty & crisp. Only thing I will say is I had to use a LOT more than 2 tablespoons of flour- though that could just be my preference. I was very pleased with how this turned out, they taste just like I remember them. :)
I thought theses were delicious. I used a gluten free flour mix, but it took way more than two tbsp of flour to make the potatoes stick together. Also, before adding the other ingredients, I rinsed the potatoes and onions in water and let drain, so some of the the starch was removed. I used to see both my grandmothers do this.
This is the best latke recipe I've tried and it's the easiest too. I took others' advice and used matzo meal, as I had some on hand, and just added it until I had the consistency I wanted. I usually drain the potatoes and onions, but decided not to. It left the mix really soupy, but I just grabbed a bunch of mix and squeezed the excess liquid out. By keeping it all in the liquid, it actually kept the mixture from turning that ugly brown that it usually does. Needless to say, I've found my new recipe that I will use from here on out! My husband tasted and said they are the best I've ever made!
Sorry but we thought that these were bland. If I make them again I would probably tweak them and them and add some parmesan or maybe some jalapeno. Thanks for posting the recipe
Great recipe! They were easy to make, and turned out just like the latkes I used to eat as a kid. I did add extra flour though.
