Easy Potato Latkes

This potato latke recipe has been passed down though our family. The secret in these latkes is dicing the potatoes in the food processor rather than grating them.

Phenomenal recipe! My first time making latkes on my own and all my guests were raving. I don't own a food processor so I peeled and grated the potatoes and onion. I added a couple of dashes of pepper and garlic powder. The recipe made a lot, depending on how big your latkes are. I even sent someone home with the recipe. This is a holiday staple recipe for us now.

This was great! My family loved it. I think I needed more potatoes. My batter was too thin and I struggled a little bit. Next time I will make sure I have a thicker consistency. But even with that, it was great. Thank you for a great dish.

Very good! I didn't bother cubing the spuds since they were going to be processed. I quartered them and it worked fine. I also only used about 1 thick slice of onion, and that was enough. These turned out quite delicious with sour cream and bacon bits. Be warned, though: don't prepare this too far in advance as the potatoes will start to brown. It still tastes fine (at least to me), but it looks a little less yummy. Thanks for sharing, Basg!

Finally, perfect latkes! A few adjustments: I used 5 smallish russet potatoes and left the skins on, 1 egg and added black pepper to the mix. I did not squeeze the grated potatoes. The potatoes juices pooled at the bottom of the mixing bowl. I used a 1/3 cup measuring cup. This recipe gave me 8 uniformed patties. Fried for approximately 4 mins. each side. Terrific with our beef polska keilbasa and saurkraut. Don't forget the homemade applesauce and sour cream!

Very tasty and easy to make. I doubled the recipe but not the onions. I like the taste of onions but I thought that 2 onions was too much. I used 1 medium size onion...about 2 inches in diameter. It was just enough flavoring.

The recipe was perfect. I lost my original recipe that I had for years and printed this one out. perfect. A few minor changes though. I let the potato/onion mixture sit in a colander and I push the liquid out. Than i let the potatoe water sit for 5 minutes so it becomes sediment (potato starch) and I add that to the mix as well. Also, I added more salt and definitely pepper. Soooo good!!

Great and simple! The Commenter above may have used too large of an onion, or too small potatoes. I used very large potatoes and a medium red onion (I also added crumbled bacon) and I thought they were very good

These were delicious, and my kids loved them! I did follow the advice of previous posters, and I only used 1 egg. Instead of latkes, I made them the size of falafels, which allowed them to fry faster. I probably got about 20-25 from this recipe. Easy and quick!
