  • 1 lb Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt adjust to taste
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying


  • Peel the skin off the potatoes. Shred the peeled potato and onion using either a food processor or a box grater.
  • Using a cheesecloth or clean kitchen towel, squeeze as much liquid out of the shredded potatoes as possible.
  • In a large bowl, add shredded potato and onion, followed by the whisked egg, flour, and salt. Toss with your hands to combine.
  • In a preheated pan with oil, place a spoonful of the potato mixture into the pan and flatten it with the backside of the spoon. Fry until golden, then flip with a spatula and fry on the other side. Repeat. Serve fresh and enjoy!


This makes about 20 latkes. Use the same proportions for sweet potato, zucchini,
carrots, to make them colorful.
