Vodka Latkes

Here’s to my all time favorite latke recipe. My grandmothers Chanuka heirloom – punched up with some alcoholic properties…

The perfect Chanuka-party-potato-pancake! Enjoy!!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Onions
  • 10 Potatoes
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup Matzo Meal
  • 1  1⁄2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1⁄8 cup Olive Oil (plus plenty for frying!)
  • crushed black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Vodka
  • sour cream (optional)
  • applesauce (optional)

Peel and quarter the potatoes and onions. Process in food processor, in shifts, until pureed. Pour potato/onion puree into a colander in the sink, in order to rid of excess potato liquid. Pour into a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well with a spoon.

Heat up plenty of oil (the latkes should be lightly floating in it – but not deep frying!) Fry each side on medium/high until golden brown. Serve immediately with a dollop of cold sour cream topped with cold applesauce for the best effect!!

(Can be re-heated later, single layered in the oven on °200)
