Potato Pancakes (Latkes)
- 1 1/2 pounds (about 4 medium) white potatoes, peeled
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, optional
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 small yellow onion, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Fit SaladShooter® slicer/shredder with Shred cone. Shred potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Drain off any excess liquid, if necessary. Do not rinse.
Whisk egg, salt, seasoning, if desired, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over potatoes. Add flour and onion; stir well to mix. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Heat Presto® Electric Griddle at 350°. Drizzle oil on griddle. Drop potato mixture onto the griddle in one-third cup portions. Flatten with a spatula. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes each side or until potatoes are cooked through. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°F.
Remove potato pancakes from griddle and drain on paper towel. Continue with remaining mixture. Hold in oven until ready to serve.
