For my dad, Saul Reichert, the thinner the latke the better. He doesn't hesitate to thin mine out if he sees they are too thick.

With food processor or grater, coarsely grate potatoes and onion. Transfer to sieve; press out excess water. Transfer to large bowl; mix in egg, flour and salt.

In nonstick skillet, heat enough oil over medium-high heat to cover bottom of pan. Add 1/4 cup (50 mL) potato mixture per latke, leaving at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) between each; spread to flatten.

Fry, in batches and adding more oil as needed, until bottoms are golden and edges are crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and fry until golden, about 3 minutes longer. Drain on paper towel–lined racks. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 8 hours; reheat on rimmed baking sheets in 400°F/200°C oven, about 5 minutes.)
