Potato Latkes

Serve these hot with applesauce, fat-free or light sour cream, and chopped green onions if desired.



 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled and shredded Russet potatoes, firmly packed (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup grated or finely chopped onion, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tablespoons egg substitute
  • 2-3 tablespoons low sodium matzo meal, a little less than 1 matzo, processed into fine crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons canola oil

Instructions

Step 1
Place the potatoes in a cheesecloth or double thickness of paper towels and wring to extract as much water out of the potatoes as possible.
Step 2
In medium bowl, stir the potatoes, onion, egg, egg substitute, and matzo meal and salt together well.
Step 3
In a large, heavy-bottomed, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until hot. Make sure the oil is spread evenly over the bottom of the skillet. Place 1/4 cup (level measure) of potato mixture into the hot oil, pressing down on them to form 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick patties. Spray tops with canola cooking spray. Brown on one side about 3 minutes, turn over and brown the other side (about 3 minutes).
Step 4
Serve these hot with applesauce, fat-free or light sour cream, and chopped green onions.
