Potato Laktes

First let me just say that I don't know what kind of goy (I know, goy is harsh but I'm going for shock value!) actually STILL hand grates their potatoes when making potato laktes. No offense to the folks out there who are still in the dark ages when it comes to food processors but, modern technology has made huge strides in the culinary catagory. Let's say this together......FOOD PRO-CES-SOR. Now, isn't that better?

There are many many variations on the classic potato latke or potato pancake. This one I'm trying this year sounded the simplist out of all of them. I'll have to fill you in on how it goes.

6 Large Potatoes
1 Medium onion
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup flour

Process potatoes and onions in food processor and remove excess liquid using cheese cloth or mesh sieve. Heat oil till it pops (Peanut or Canola oil). Fry small spoonfuls until golden brown. Pancakes should be about 2-3 inches in diameter or easy enough to flip with a spatula. Drain and serve hot. ENJOY!

you definitely don't need a food processor to make these. In fact, i enjoy them more hand grated because it doesn't make it such a fine paste like a food processor does, gives it a better texture in my opinion. Very nice simple recipe here, do you usually serve these with sour cream? is apple sauce good? i've been told to try it.
