I decided to find a recipe for BAKED potato latkes (fritter) for the last two days of Hannukak. I wanted to cut down on grease, oil and cholesterol.
I found this real great recipes which I gave 9.5/10 on my scale. Sue likes them with applesauce and cinnamon which I do too. I also like sour cream (when we don't have meat for meal).
Potato Latkes, Baked (P)
Source: Mindy Hermann, Chicago Sun Times
Yield: 24 latkes
4 medium Yukon gold potatoes (My option : Shoe string potatoes in freezer -bag)
1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped (my option : I added 2 onions)
1 large egg (my option : I added two whole eggs)
2 egg whites (my option : none)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. flour
Using the coarse blade of a grater (or food processor), grate potatoes and onion alternately into bowl (mixing the potatoes and onion prevents the potatoes from browning).
By hand, squeeze out the excess moisture. Stir in egg, egg whites, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of flour. If the mixture is wet, add the additional flour.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Add potato mixture by 2 tablespoon measure. Flatten to 1/4" thick. Spray the tops of the latkes with cooking spray.
Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 20 minutes. Remove, flip over, and bake another 20 minutes or until golden.
