Creative Latkes

My favorite part of Chanukah has always been Latkes.  This year, we asked  Creative Edge Parties  for their favorite Latke recipe.   Enjoy.


Yield:              About 20-24 pancakes

9                Large Russet Potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated

1 ½            Spanish Onions, grated

½ cup        Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley

1 ½ tsp      Salt

1 tsp          White Pepper

4                 Eggs

¼ cup        Flour

Olive Oil

Crème Fraiche and/or Apple Chutney


In a large bowl, combine potato and onion.  Add parsley, salt, pepper and eggs, and stir until incorporated. Add flour and toss until combined and evenly coated.

Fill a large skillet with about 1/2 inch olive oil. Place over medium heat until oil is almost smoking. (To test, drop a small bit of batter into the skillet; it should sizzle upon contact.)

Shape into pancakes using about 2 tablespoons of batter for each pancake.  Carefully place pancake into oil latke. Cook, turning once, until golden on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spatula, transfer to a paper-towel-lined wire rack to drain. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve immediately with apple chutney and crème fraiche, our version of an updated applesauce/sour cream.

Thank you Creative Edge!
