Happy Hanukkah everyone!
Our favorite thing about Hanukkah?
Best things ever…
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes
What you need:
3 ½ cups shredded potatoes (for fast latkes use the store bought kind)
½ sweet onion, grated
3 eggs, beaten
¼ cup matzo meal (you could substitute all purpose flour too)
½ cup peanut oil for frying
What to do:
Using a cheese cloth squeeze all the moisture out of your potatoes.
Once you’ve gotten them as dry as you can, place them into a large bowl with the onion, eggs, matzo meal, and season with S&P. Stir together well to combine.
Preheat a large skillet and your peanut oil over medium high heat. Form the mixture into small silver dollar pancake size latkes. Working in batches place the latkes down into the oil.
Cook until golden brown, then flip to brown the other side. Drain on paper towels, serve hot with applesauce and sour cream.
Now gather round the table, light some candles, play some dreidel and enjoy. Happy Hanukkah!!!
