|Crispy and wonderful!|
Latkes are fried potato pancakes. They, and other fried foods, are traditionally eaten during Hanukkah to commemorate the miracle of the oil. Ashley's recipe is delicious and she's allowing me to share it with you.
Ashley's 8th Night Latkes
1 large bag of Ore-Ida's frozen hash browns, thawed in the refrigerator
3 onions, peeled
1 Red Delicious apple, peeled and cored
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
Crack the 8 eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk them with a fork. When they are blended, stir in the entire bag of thawed hash browns.
Place the 3 onions and the apple in a food processor and puree them until they are smooth. Squeeze the excess juice from puree with cheesecloth or a dish towel, then add the mixture to the egg and potatoes. Add the salt and pepper, then stir well until combined.
|Most of the mix had already gone in the|
oil by this point, but you get the idea.
Heat about 1-1/2 cups vegetable oil in a deep skillet. When the oil is hot enough for a bread crumb to fry, drop spoonfuls of the latke mix (about 1/4 cup each) into the hot oil.
Let each latke fry until it is golden brown on one side, then flip it using a slotted spatula. When each side is golden brown, remove it from the oil and place on paper towels to drain.
|Pile 'o latkes!|
Serve with sour cream and/or applesauce, or ketchup if you prefer. Enjoy!

Happy (after) Hanukkah and happy latke-ing!
