Okay, I swear I was Jewish in another life. Seriously, I could live on anything in a Jewish kitchen, during Passover included. On the first or second night of Hanukkah we eat latkes, matzah ball soup, and fried doughnuts. I just love latkes with sour cream and homemade apple sauce. The kiddos eat their latkes with apple sauce. The husband is a purist at heart and likes his plain and fresh from the frying pan. Give this recipe a try and it will become a tradition during the holiday of lights. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 T flour or matzah
Shred potatoes by hand into a bowl filled with cold water. Once shredded, pour off water and add your egg, salt, pepper, and flour then mix well. Heat oil over medium heat in a cast iron or heavy bottom skillet. When oil is heated, drop potato mixture by the tablespoon into the hot oil and spread out a little. Cook until brown and then turn and brown other side. Serve hot with sour cream and apple sauce.
