    40 minutes

    These are flavourful and crispy potato pancakes. They are very easy to make if you have a food processor to shred the potatoes.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 cups peeled and grated potatoes
    • 2 tablespoons dry onion soup mix
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 40g grated cheddar cheese
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • cracked black pepper to taste
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 tablespoon chopped spring onion for garnish
    • 1 tablespoon sour cream for garnish

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Place the grated potatoes in a cloth and wring as much of the moisture out as possible. Place the potatoes into a bowl, and stir in the onion soup mix, garlic, eggs, flour, Cheddar cheese, salt and pepper until well mixed.
    2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frypan over medium heat until it shimmers and drop the potato mixture by heaping tablespoons into the hot oil. Press down on the patties to flatten them to about 1cm thick. Fry the patties until golden brown and crisp on the bottoms, 5 to 8 minutes, then flip and cook the other side until crisp and golden. Remove the latkes to paper towels to drain and serve hot, sprinkled with spring onion and a small dollop of sour cream.

    the cheese was a great idea! I also added seasoned salt (instead of regular table salt), nutmeg, and a dash each of cinnamon, all spice, and chili powder. Awesome!  -  21 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
