This is a classic recipe for potato latkes. Whether served thick or thin, they'll turn out delicious. Serve them with homemade applesauce and sour cream.
Jewish people living in the Pale of Settlement in the 17th century had a diet that consisted mainly of potatoes and bread. They created latkes as a special dish because they are cooked in oil, which symbolizes the miracle of Hanukkah. They can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as an appetizer. They taste great plain but can be eaten with sugar, applesauce, sour cream or even chicken soup.
Makes about 2 dozen
If you'd like to freeze the latkes, place them on a cookie sheet, freeze and then place them in a plastic bag. When ready to serve, bake in a 450 degree F oven for several minutes.
