  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.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix shredded Yukon Gold potatoes, mashed potatoes and onion. Add in eggs, matzo meal and salt; mix well.
  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.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm enough oil or butter or margarine to cover 1/4 inch of the skillet.
  5. When hot, drop mixture by heaping tablespoon to oil; flatten with a spatula and cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve.

The latkes were tasty & will be my new favorite Hannuka recipe. They even freeze quite well, without too much loss in flavor!

Mine did not turn out light and fluffy. And the taste wasn't that great either. I was disappointed. I t could have been the recipe or the cook...i don't know...try 4 yourself.

I made these twice for the holidays and both times people told me these were the best latkes they had ever had
