Easy Potato Latkes

Recipe photo courtesy of Maura Mcevoy

Specially made for Hanukkah, latkes are potato pancakes that are fried in oil in recognition of the ancient lamps that held only enough oil for one day but miraculously burned for eight. Adding carrots, beets, parsnips, spinach, and currants also celebrates the past, when latkes were made with vegetables, cheeses, or fruits.

    Instead of using a box grater I use my food processor. I put the potatoes through the large grater first, put them into a bowl. After I blend the eggs and onions together I put the potatoes back into the processor and pulse them to the right consistency. They come out perfect!
