We'd be lying if we called these "quick & easy." This potato pancake recipe takes more time than other recipes, but they're not hard, and they're worth the extra effort! Make 'em for Hanukkah or a special side dish or appetizer. They'll taste the love!

What You'll Need

  • 4 pounds Idaho Russet potatoes, peeled and chunked
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. In a food processor, process the potatoes and onions in batches, until finely chopped. Empty each batch into a strainer and, using a spoon, press down on the mixture to remove as much water as possible.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine potato-onion mixture, the flour, bread crumbs, baking powder, salt, pepper, and eggs; mix well.
     
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
     
  4. Using a serving spoon, spoon about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake into the hot oil, flattening into a pancake shape. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden on both sides.
     
  5. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and serve warm.

Serving Tips

  • Make these small if you want to serve them as appetizers. Serve with the traditional fixin's of applesauce and sour cream.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Liked the other receipe. Used mashed and grated potatoes.

they are peeled & grated

Exactly what I thought, also!!

I have always made my latke's like this - well I have substituted bread crumbs for matzo meal. Tonight I had no matzo meal so I had to use bread crumbs - DELICIOUS. Nice way to start Chanukah. Latke's, sour cream and applesauce - my 5 yr old granddaughter reciting the blessing over the candles.

I have always grated the potatos,they taste better that way.

thanks have been looken for this receipe my husband an kids are so happy that i have it an my potatoe cakes stay together thank you

i thought the potatos would be shredded not pressed

White House Strawberries Romanoff

This classic dessert is so special, it's worthy of being on a White House menu. Come to think of it...it was! This is one of the desserts that was served when former President Kennedy and his family hosted a luncheon for Princess Grace Kelly. The good news is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy our White House Strawberries Romanoff!
