Why you’ll like it

Potato pancakes are very popular in the United States mainly thanks to the Jewish tradition: the preparation of these delicious pancakes, called potato latkes, is in fact linked to the festival of lights, Hanukkah.  

In the original preparation raw potatoes and onion are grated, then flour, eggs, salt, and pepper are added and the mixture is made which will then be fried in plenty of oil to make pancakes that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

What is the difference between potato pancakes and latkes?

Latkes use medium matzo meal instead of flour and have a deeply browned crust as a result. On the other hand, these Perkins Potato pancakes are soft at the center and have a thin yet crispy crust.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 russet potatoes (or 2 1/2 cups frozen has browns)

  2. Now add the flour, salt, pepper, eggs, milk, and spices mixing all the ingredients well.
  3. If the mixture is too liquid, add a little more flour.
  4. Heat the oil in the pan and, as soon as it is hot, pour the mixture with the help of a spoon making discs as regular as possible.
  5. Cook them until golden brown and turn them halfway through cooking to brown them on both sides.
  6. Once ready, arrange them on absorbent kitchen paper, so as to eliminate excess oil, add a little salt and dill. Your potato pancakes are ready to serve.
  7. You can serve the potato pancakes with apple sauce, butter, sour cream, or yogurt sauce, to make them even tastier.
  8. Alternatively, you can also accompany them with fish main courses such as tuna, swordfish, or smoked salmon, as well as meat, bacon, salami, and cheese dishes.
