About this recipe: My family loves these as a side dish or for Sunday brunch. Delicious served with tomatoes and topped with soured cream and spring onions.
This was a super simple recipe and a definite keeper. The only change I made was to add a little garlic powder. I used my food processor to shred the potatoes and onion. I doubled the batch and made the pancakes small...ended up with about 40 pancakes which was perfect for the party I took them to. - 18 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the closest recipe on this site for authentic German Latke's like my mom makes. Sometimes we use breadcrumbs instead of flour or leave out the egg and flour altogether (they still hold together nicely from the starch in the potato). We sometimes will add spices (my mom likes chili powder or thyme while I prefer oregano, basil and parmesan cheese.) My latest, delicious addition was some shredded, leftover zucchini I had from making zucchini bread. - 20 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tasty and extremly easy to make. instead of chopping onion I grated it with the potato. No biting into large obnoxious chunks of onion that way ;-) - 25 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
