Potato Latkes II Recipe
- 2 cups potato, cubed
- 3 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and shredded
- 1 onion, shredded
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons matzo meal
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
step 1: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and mash.
step 2: In a medium bowl, mix shredded Yukon Gold potatoes, mashed potatoes and onion. Add in eggs, matzo meal and salt; mix well.
step 3: Feel consistency of the dough; mixture should hold together without being sticky. If it sticks to your hands, add more matzo meal until dough is no longer sticky.
step 4: In a large skillet over medium heat, warm enough oil or butter or margarine to cover 1/4 inch of the skillet.
step 5: When hot, drop mixture by heaping tablespoon to oil; flatten with a spatula and cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve.
