Lots of Latkes!
*Laura's Latkes Serves 4
4 Medium peeled potatoes, any kind of potatoes work great with this recipe, if you use small red or gold potatoes use about 6-8 of them though.1 Medium size carrots, peeled
2 Tbs parsley, short stems or finely chopped for garnish
1/4 of a medium size onion, peeled; use less or more onion if you prefer
2 tsp salt
2 Tbs. all purpose flour
1/2 cup cooking oil
Using a cheese grater, grate potatoes, carrots and onion into a bowl, add eggs, salt and flour and mix well. Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Spoon out potato mixture with teaspoon into the hot skillet and fry until edges are golden brown, then turn over and fry other side for about 3-5 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with parsley and serve with your favorite topping.*Little ones love to help in the kitchen with these too. I gave my daughter her own small bowl of the potato mixture to stir together herself, then I scooped a 1/2 teaspoon of it onto the skillet for her. She thoroughly enjoyed her own mini latkes or as she calls them mootkes.
Peace and Happy Hanukkah!
