Before all of the Christmas celebrations, we made some latkes to celebrate my Jewish half. While you make and eat these please please please listen to and sing along with my favorite Hanukkah song growing up, David Grover's "Latkes" song...there's a sample here. Quick & tasty, latkes can be whipped up and devoured within 15 minutes.

Ingredients (for 4):
4 potatoes, shredded
2 onions, shredded
1 egg
2 tbs salt
3 tbs canola oil
Applesauce and/or sour cream for topping

1. In a large bowl combine the shredded potatoes and onions. Press a paper towel down into the bowl to soak up some of the liquid. 

2. Add egg & salt and whisk with a fork to thoroughly mix.

3. Heat canola oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add scoops of potato mixture to the pan and press down to flatten into pancakes.

4. After 4 minutes or until you can see browned bits on the side-down, flip and continue to cook until crisped through, about 4 more minutes.


5. Continue this pattern with remainder of potato mixture. Transfer crisped latkes to a paper towel-lined plate, cover with additional paper towels and press down to soak any excess oil.

6. Serve warm with applesauce or sour cream...

...or if you're weird, like T, with both applesauce & sour cream.
