5 Medium Baking Potatoes
1 Clove of Garlic (optional)
2 tbsp Flour
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
Salt + Pepper to taste
Apple Sauce (for serving)
Sour Cream (for serving)
Grate the potatoes, onion and garlic by hand or in a food processor using the grater attachment and place in colander. Using a clean tea towel and a colander, squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
Place in a bowl and mix together with flour, eggs, salt and pepper.
Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in a stainless steel or cast iron frying pan. Shape strained potato mixture into a pancake shape. Flatten to ensure it cooks evenly and fry until golden brown, turning once (approximately 2-3 minutes per side).
Place cooked latkes on a baking sheet lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil. To keep latkes warm, place on a wire rack on a baking sheet in the oven until ready to serve.
Top with sour cream, apple sauce (or both!)
