Potato latkes are crisp shredded potato pancakes, served with sour cream or applesauce. You can eat them as a side dish, appetizer or plain old snack. They will disappear quickly, so make more than you think you’ll need.
Shredded Potato Latkes ( Pancakes )
- 6 large potatoes (, peeled (about 2 1/2 pounds))
- 1 small onion (, finely chopped)
- 2 eggs (, lightly beaten)
- 3 tbsps flour
- 2 tsps Lawry's® Seasoned Salt
- 1/2 tsp Lawry's® Garlic Pepper
