Look no further for that easy, tried-and-true latke recipe to star at your Chanukah party.
In a large bowl combine eggs, salt, pepper, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a food processor fitted with the “kugel” blade, add onion and potatoes. Process.
Use your hands to scoop out potato mixture and over the sink or a bowl press your hands together to try and squeeze out as much “juice” as possible.
Add “dryer” potato mixture to the egg bowl.
Repeat until all the potatoes and onion have been added. Mix until combined.
Add flour and stir until fully incorporated.
Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to fill the pan one inch high.
When oil is hot, use a ladle to drop in large scoops of potato mixture, making sure not to over crowd the pan. (This may take a few batches but the more room each latke has to fry, the crispier the result will be!)
Allow each latke to fry for two minutes on the first side, then flip and fry one more minute. Remove to a cooling rack or paper towel to drain (To Paper Towel or Not To Paper Towel) and repeat with remaining batter.
Serve hot and enjoy!
