Serve these little bites warm or at room temperature with a dollop of sour cream or Chunky Applesauce (see recipe link below). These are at their best when made the same day but, if you prefer, they reheat well.

  • Portion size 38 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchinis (about 8 oz/250 g total)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Yukon Gold potatoes peeled (about 1 lb/500 g total)
  • 1/2 onion grated
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying (approx)

Method

With food processor or grater, coarsely grate zucchini. Transfer to colander and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt ; let stand for 30 minutes. Using tea towel or potato ricer, squeeze out liquid. Transfer to large bowl.

Coarsely grate potatoes. Using tea towel or potato ricer, squeeze out liquid; add to zucchini.

With fork, stir in onion, egg, flour and remaining salt to combine.

In large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover bottom of pan over medium-high heat. Add rounded 1 tbsp (15 mL) potato mixture per latke, leaving at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) between each; flatten slightly.

Cook latkes, in batches, adding more oil as needed and turning halfway through, until golden and edges are crisp, about 5 minutes.

Drain latkes on paper towel-lined racks. (Make-ahead: Remove paper. Let stand for up to 4 hours or cover and refrigerate on rack for up to 24 hours. Reheat on rack on baking sheet in 425°F/220°C oven, 6 to 8 minutes.)
