Yield:
9 latkes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baking potatoes—peeled, halved and sliced on a turning slicer or shredded

  • 1 medium onion, coarsely grated

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the potatoes, onion, flour and eggs; season well with salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat 1/4 cup of the oil until shimmering. Drop about 1/2 cup of the latke mixture into the skillet and spread it slightly. Repeat to make 2 more latkes. Cook over moderately high heat until browned on the bottom, about 7 minutes. Turn and cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel. Make 6 more latkes, using the remaining oil and potato mixture. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot
