Potato Pancakes (Latkes)

Print Recipe
  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 4 medium) white potatoes, peeled and washed
  • 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

Place potatoes in a bowl of cold water until ready to use.

Fit SaladShooter® slicer/shredder with shredding cone. Shred potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Drain off any excess liquid, if necessary. Do not rinse.

Whisk egg, salt, seasoning mix, 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.
