Crispy Holiday LatkesLion Brand®
Makes enough for four people.
Note that this recipe makes very lacy, crispy latkes. For a less lacy or less crisp texture, omit the water. These are traditionally served with sour cream, jam and applesauce.
4 large potatoes1 onion2 eggsSaltPepper2 Tbsp matzo meal
1 cup canola oil for frying.
Grate potatoes and onion (using a food processor makes this simple!) Add the egg. Fill one half eggshell with water 4 times so you've added as much water as there is egg. Stir in the matzo meal.
Cover the bottom of a heavy frying pan with approximately 1/2 inch [1 cm] of the oil. Heat until the oil is quite hot, then drop the batter into the oil. Spread the latke batter if needed so it is quite thin (the latkes should have holes in them). Cook until one side is brown, then turn and cook the other side.
Remove from pan, place on paper towels to drain.
Serve while piping hot!

Great recipe . . . being Catholic, we grew up with potato pancakes about once a month on Fridays . . . even after Vatican II, we still didn't eat meat on Fridays . . . and most times didn't mind especially on those very special Fridays when you could catch a whiff of potatoes, onions and hot oil. My Gram's recipe used a combo of bread crumbs and flour . . . enough to water to make it wet, then enough flour/bread crumbs to make them dry. I love my Gram. I'll have to try making them with matzo meal.

Actually, my hubby believes that his family was originally Russian Jews who fled to escape the pogroms. His grandfather changed his name upon entering the United States, they moved to a Polish Catholic neighborhood and that, as they say, is all she wrote.

But my Irish-born grandma is the one who made the potato pancakes.
