Ingredients

  • 10 potatoes peeled
  • 2 onions halved
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup matzo meal (such as Saltine)
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed unsalted crackers (such as Saltine)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying

Method

By hand or in food processor with shredder blade, grate potatoes alternating with onions. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, matzo meal, salt and pepper. Add potatoes and onions; toss to mix.

Pour enough oil into each of 2 large heavy skillets to come 1/4 inch (5 mm) up side; heat over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Using 1/4 cup (50 mL) lightly packed potato mixture per latke, add to pan, leaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) between each; flatten slightly. Fry, turning once, until edges are golden and crisp, 6 minutes. Drain on paper towel-lined racks.

With small sieve, remove any potato pieces from oil and discard. Repeat with remaining latke mixture, heating more oil as necessary. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheet for up to 8 hours. Recrisp on unlined baking sheets in 450°F/230°C oven for about 5 minutes.)
