I did not find these latkes to be good at all. They were Bland
The BEST potato pancakes ever are from a restaurant called Family pancake house in Edmonds, WA. All others are just glorified hashbrowns. If you can duplicate them, I'm in.
I'm a really good cooker. This recipe looks amazing. Potatoes are so underrated.
I assume you grate half the potatoes and use the ricer for the rest. I actually think that it is much easier to just throw the raw potatoes in a Cuisinart with the onion (in small amounts) and process them until they are moderately chopped. Then squeeze everything. I do it with my hands. Eggs, matzo meal, salt and pepper are the same. I have been told that my potato latkes are perfect and delicious. I think so too!! And my recipe takes less effort and less time. Just wanted to throw that out there.
These were a bit time consuming but some of the best latkes I've ever made. Definitely worth the effort but carve out a decent amount of prep time to get them well made. We had 12 people over and did 1.5x the recipe. I wish I had doubled it because the latke's were completely devoured by our guessts! If you don't have a potato ricer you can use the reverse side of the grating blade used in grating the baking potatoes (the smaller side) and it works perfectly.
