Amazing Potato Latkes

Print Email

7 medium sized potatoes
1 large peeled onion
2 tablespoons Matzo Meal (for you non-Jews, Matzo Meal is a Manischewitz product and can be found at your local grocery store)
2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon salt       
1 teaspoon white pepper
Corn oil for cooking
Salt, applesauce and sour cream for eating

TIP FOR COOKING:  While you are preparing the ingredients, preheat the oil since it takes time to get to the high temperature needed for frying!  (But make sure to leave the lid off your frying pan.)

Place a strainer into a LARGE bowl, and into that grate the potatoes and the onion (leave the skin on the potatoes, but wash them well).  Mix together.  Using clean hands, press the potato and onion mixture into the strainer to get the liquid out.  Discard the liquid from the bowl, and dump the potato and onion from the strainer into the bowl.  Add the egg yolks, Matzo Meal, salt, and pepper.  Mix together.  Beat egg whites until they form hard peaks, and then fold them into the mixture as well.  Place large spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and flatten to form 2-3 inch round pancakes.  Let the latkes cook until they are crispy and brown, and then flip them over.  Repeat until they are as crispy and brown as desired on both sides.  Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.  Serve with salt, applesauce, and sour cream.
