How To Make italian style potato latkes

  • 1
    Place slices of the potatoes and onion in the food processor, using the shredding blade. Place the shredded potato and onion in a kitchen towel and squeeze the excess juice. Place in large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Place about ½ inch of oil in a large cast iron frying pan and heat. Using two tablespoons, spoon the batter into the oil. When one side is crisp, carefully turn over and finish cooking on the other side. Place on paper towels to drain the excess oil.
