Lotta Latkes!Posted: December 3, 2010
We have some family and friends over for dinner on Wednesday – the first night of Hannukah. Among several other dishes, we made the traditional potato pancakes. The recipe was nothing special – grated potato, a bit of grated onion, egg, a few Tbsp of flour to bind, plus salt and pepper.
However, there was one thing that made these latkes particularly delicious this time around, and you tell what it was from the glistening, golden-brownitude above. Rather than mincing about with any lightly oiled cooking surface or sautee/bake hybrid process, we threw health concerns to to the wind straight up fried these fellas in a good quarter-inch of canola oil. Just call it 8 days worth of fat consumption.
To balance out, however, Tina did make some baked doughnuts that were delicious, despite undermining the very foundation of this holiday’s cuisine. Maybe she’ll post about them later.
