Baked Potato Latkes

Recipe By:Bronson McKinley
“We love to eat potato skins, but I got tired of just using the starch that we scooped out for mashed potatoes. I thought: ‘Hmmm, latkes, that could be interesting.’ So I tooled around with a the basics of latkes until I had a recipe that I liked. They were such a hit with the family that it’s been a staple ever since.”

Ingredients

  • 3 cups peeled and mashed baked potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground multi-colored peppercorns
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil, or as need for frying

Directions

  1. Pour potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, ground peppercorns, flour, and eggs into a bowl, respectively. Fold mixture together with a rubber spatula until ingredients are well coated with egg and garlic, salt, and pepper are evenly mixed throughout. Break up any large potato chunks.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Form latke dough into baseball-size balls and flatten into 1-inch thick rounds.
  4. Working in batches, place latkes in hot oil and cook until edges are a rich brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip latkes using a slotted spoon and cook until crisp and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool.
