Hash Brown Latkes

Yields: 4 servings

What you need


Place the shredded potatoes and onion into a large bowl and cover with cold water by about 2 inches. Let rest until the potatoes and onion are completely soaked, about 20 to 30 minutes. Pour the potato-onion mixture into a colander, rinse, drain, squeeze, and dry repeatedly to remove all moisture.

Whisk eggs, flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until smooth.

Using a spatula, gently mix the potato-onion mixture and egg mixture together in a large bowl until completely blended.

Heat 1/4-inch oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is well heated and shimmering, drop a large spoonful of potato batter into hot oil, being careful of splattering. Flatten each pancake with a spatula to about 1/2-inch thick. Cook until the edges of the pancakes are golden brown and crispy, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, flip pancakes, and cook on the other side for about 5 minutes or more. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream and smoked salmon or applesauce.
