The year we discovered this recipe, I made latkes every single night of Chanukah.


6 medium potatoes, peeled
1 large onion
3 eggs
1/3 c flour
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper (or to taste)
¾ – 1 c oil


  1. Grate potatoes and onions in a food processor. Make sure to strain the mixture to remove all excess water.
  1. Add eggs, flour, salt and pepper.
  1. Heat ½ c of oil in a large skillet on a medium to high heat. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry until latkes is golden brown (4-5 minutes). Turn over and fry the second side (2-3 minutes).
  1. Continue to add oil as necessary. Use paper towels to remove excess oil from the latkes.
  1. Serve with applesauce or sour cream.
