Tasty Potato Latkes

While we’re still in Chanukah, here’s another recipe from the POTATO-RECIPE Yahoo! Group, this one is for the holiday treat, latkes!

Tasty Potato Latkes

4 medium potatoes, about 1 1/2 pounds
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 cloves garlic (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon cooking oil
1/4 - 1/2 cups non-dairy sour cream

1. Peel and finely shred potatoes. In a mixing bowl combine potatoes with olive oil, eggs, garlic (if desired), and salt. Using 1/3 cup mixture for each latke, press mixture into patties about the size of the palm of your hand, squeezing out excess liquid.

2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Carefully slide patties into hot oil.

3. Cook over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or until latkes are golden brown, turning once.

4. Repeat with remaining batter. Add cooking additional oil during cooking, as needed.

5. If necessary, reduce heat to medium to prevent over browning. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Serve with non-dairy sour cream, if desired. Makes about 10 latkes. (Nutrition information is given per latke plus 1 teaspoon non-dairy sour cream.)
