My hubby finally bought me a food processor for my late birthday/late Chanukah present. I LOVE it! The first thing I did was make lattkes with it. Oh did I make a lotta lattkes. Instead of taking ages with the box grater it just took a few minutes. Thank you hubby! These are great for breakfast or a side to any meal. I put in a few drops of vanilla as well. You can very easily double or halve this recipe.
3 large eggs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
between 1/4 to 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
oil for frying
Peel potatoes. Place potatoes and onions in a food processor fitted with a shredding blade. Drain mixture well.
Pour potato mixture into a large bowl. Add beaten eggs. Add salt and pepper. Add enough
flour so that the mixture holds together. Add a few drops of vanilla if desired.
Pour 1 inch of oil into a large, deep frying pan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Carefully drop 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the hot oil. Flatten the pancake slightly so the center will cook. Fry for several minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream or applesauce.
