Potato Latkes aka Potato Pancakes

I have not been eating right these past few days.  With chaos and change I guess comes stress.  I have really been neglecting breakfast, lunch and dinner at normal times.  So since breakfast is the most important part of the day, here is a filling and yummy way to start it off!

Potato Latkes

2 Potatoes (1 for every 4 people)
1 small finely diced Onion
4 Eggs, beaten (2 per potato)
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper 
Sour Cream (optional)
Apple Sauce (optional)

  1. Thoroughly wash and scrub Potatoes.
  2. Grate Potatoes.  Add finely diced Onion.
  3. Season accordingly.  I like mine with a bit of heat but for the rest of the family, the standard salt and pepper is just enough!

  4. Mix grated Potatoes, finely diced Onion and Eggs.  Thoroughly coat the Potato-Onion mixture with the beaten Eggs.
  5. Coat a pan with EVOO and wait until hot.
  6. Dollop about 2 spoonfuls of your Potato mixture into coated-heated pan.  Keep flame on medium-low.
  7. Each side takes about 4-5 minutes.
  8. Serve with sour cream and applesauce or your favorite breakfast accompaniments!
