Easy-Peasy Potato Latkes

Hello, Friday (when did you get here?)
Is it me or did we skip November? Time is flying by!

Here is my super easy recipe for potato latkes. These make a great side, appetizer or toss a couple on your breakfast plate!

Coarsely chop 4 lg. peeled potatoes and 1 onion.

Shred them in a food processor

Place a strainer over a large bowl and add potato/onion mixture. Smoosh gently to remove most of the water -- sometimes i let this sit a bit, but not too know how potatoes get when left alone {funky} Pour off the water in the bowl, but save the starch that settles to the bottom.

In a small bowl, mix together 2 eggs, 3 TBS flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper and 1/4 tsp baking soda. Blend that together, then add it to the potato/onion/starch mixture in the BIG bowl. I use my hands to mix it all together really well.

Heat a bit of oil { i use Smart Balance } in a fry pan and add globs { again, i use my hands } to the hot oil. Keep re-mixing what's left in your bowl.
When they become golden, flip 'em to the other side.

Let them sit on a paper towel

Then serve! We like to enjoy our latkes with sour cream or applesauce { cinnamon apple sauce ROCKS! } To re-heat, i place them on a cookie sheet and heat for about 15-20 minutes at 300*

Enjoy!Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
