Latkes (or potato pancakes) are one of the quintessential staples of Eastern European cuisine. Fairly quick and easy to make, latkes make for an excellent snack. They are often topped with either sour cream or apple sauce. If serving the latkes as a side dish or a main, top them with beef goulash and mushrooms.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 12-16 latkes

Ingredients
4 medium potatoes, washed
2 medium eggs
1 medium onion
1 clove of garlic
3/4 cup of matzo meal (optional)
vegetable oil, for frying
cheese cloth or strainer



Method
Chop the onion and dice the garlic. Place into a large bowl and set aside.
Peel potatoes. Grate the potatoes into a second bowl using the medium-sized grating holes on the grater.



Scoop the grated potatoes into the cheese cloth or strainer. Squeeze as much liquid from the potatoes as possible and combine with the onion and garlic.

Using cheese cloth is easier, but if you don't have it available, a strainer works just as well.

Add the eggs and matzo meal into the potato & onion mixture. Season lightly with salt and mix until well combined.


Begin heating the vegetable oil in a large fry pan. Be sure the oil is about a half-centimeter deep. Drop in a small piece of the potato to test the oil.


Using your hands, scoop out a small chunk of the potatoes. Flatten the mixture to form a small pancake. Place into the oil and allow to fry until golden brown, flipping occasionally.


Place the latkes onto a plate with paper towels and set aside until all are cooked. Serve with sour cream, apple sauce, or beef goulash.
