Potato Latkes (Pancakes)

Top these tender delicacies with applesauce, and you create a side dish or brunch dish that's really special.

Makes 6 servings
(3 pancakes each serving) 

1½   pounds potatoes, unpeeled (3 medium potatoes), grated or finely shredded
½     cup liquid egg substitute
1      small onion, grated
2      tablespoons all-purpose flour
¾     teaspoon salt, or to taste
¼     teaspoon pepper, or to taste

Gather Ingredients.

Place the potatoes in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.

Then place them in a strainer and press out as much liquid as you can.

Return potatoes to bowl. Add remaining ingredients. 

Mix well.

Spray a large nonstick skillet or griddle with nonstick cooking spray. 

Preheat over medium heat. Drop potato mixture onto skillet, making 18 pancakes, using about 2 tablespoons for each pancake.

Flatten each one slightly with a spatula. Turn fritters carefully and cook until nicely browned on both sides.

  1. These are an old family favourite, my grandmother used to make them ... we call them potato fritters though :-)

    1. They are very good! I am glad families all over enjoy them.
