“These latkes are so light and fluffy that they melt in your mouth. These are great served with applesauce and sour cream.” - by Diana Swenson-Siegel
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- 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.
- In a medium bowl, mix shredded Yukon Gold potatoes, mashed potatoes and onion. Add in eggs, matzo meal and salt; mix well.
- 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.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, warm enough oil or butter or margarine to cover 1/4 inch of the skillet.
- When hot, drop mixture by heaping tablespoon to oil; flatten with a spatula and cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve.
