Kittencal's Crispy Potato and Green Onion Pancakes (Latkes)
32 mins (prep 20, cooking 12)
10 ingredients
8 servings
This recipe goes back 30 years or more, my family *loves* these! you can make these ahead of time and then freeze, just cool and place on a large baking sheet to freeze, when frozen stack in a freezer container or pop them into a freezer bag, to reheat and re-crisp, defrost the pancakes then place in a 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes turn over then continue baking until crisp, I strongly suggest to double the recipe these will be half gone before they even make it to the table! I like to add in some cayenne pepper and a bit of garlic powder but that is optional --- yield is only estimated you should get between 20-23 pancakes for this recipe, to make things easier use your processor to grate the potatoes, plan ahead the grated potatoes need to soak for a minimum of 8-24 hours or even up to 2 days to remove some of the starch, the longer soaking time the crispier they will be --- serve with sour cream :)
