It's Chanukah, and with that comes fried food. Among those would be the most made, potato latkes, or potato pancakes. I like them crunchy with a softer middle, kind of like an over sized potato chip wrapped around mashed potatoes. This is how I like to make mine.

Warning: These are not low-cal or anything that could be disguised as "diet" food.

Lace Latkes Recipe:
1 egg
1 large onion, cut in half
2 tablespoons flour (I use whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon salt
generous dash of pepper, white pepper if you have it
4 medium potatoes, peeled
oil for frying, you can use whatever oil you prefer.

In food processor take half the onion and shred it. The reaction to the onion on the blade helps the potatoes to not turn brown. Now shred your potatoes.

Take second half of onion and slice thin. Place a tablespoon of oil in a small frying pan, and get hot. Caramelize onions, and set aside to cool.

Mix together remaining ingredients, mix in potatoes and cooled onions. Mix well. Allow any excess water to go to the bottom of your bowl. You do not need or want wet latkes.

In large skillet, heat 1/2" oil until hot. Drop into the oil scant 1/3 cupful potato mixture several inches apart. Gently flatten each mound into a 4" circle.

Fry until golden brown, turning only once. Drain on paper towels. Can be kept warm in 200F oven while frying the rest. Makes 12 lace latkes.

They look absolutely delicious. Happy Chanuka!!!
We'll be eating a lot of these during Passover. (With adjustments of course.) Happy and Kosher Passover HSG. Thanks for sharing.
