Have I ever told you about my Potato Latkas obsession.

Well I have an obsession with creating, making and especially eating potato Latkas.  Its the eating part of Potato Latkas that I like the most, as the making of these is labor intensive.

First you have to really wash and clean the potatoes, slice them into quarters, run thru the food processor using the grating blade.  The best potato to use is the Yukon gold, or russet.

The whole onion needs to be peeled and sliced into quarters as well, so you can alternate between potato and onion in the grating process.

Believe it or not, I hand a hand crank cheese grater/shredder that used back in the old days to make the Latkas, talk about labor intensive!

You will want a large bowl on hand to dump the grated potatoes into, as you make more, or finish the bag which ever comes first.

I like to make a lot of Latkas, because they make the best breakfast potatoes ever!  And if you know my cooking you know that leftovers are one of the best parts of cooking.

Once all the potatoes and onions are grated and this is now in the large bowl, crack in two raw eggs, about 2-4T of flour, salt, and pepper. Once all the potatoes and onions are grated and now in the large bowl, crack in two raw eggs, add 2-4T of flour, salt, and pepper.  Mix well.

If you thinks its too dry especially for a large batch, add in another egg.  Once you have made your 100th batch it will all make sense, and you will know the exact amount of flour and egg to add.  You really cant go wrong with this recipe.

You want to drop about 1/2 C of mixture onto your hot skillet/griddle.  Fry up the Latkas until golden and cooked thru.

Make sure you have sour cream and applesauce on hand, because you will want to smother you Latka in either or both!

The family meal, has always been pork chops, Latkas and lima beans!

 

To this day whenever I cook and eat this I am filled with warm memories of me and girls sitting at the dinner table thru the years, from the very young children years to now adults years.  So many wonderful memories and stories to share, just because of the potato Latka!
