Schiff Family Secret Latke Recipe

Submitted by DarryWillis

6 potatoes (medium sized)
1 onion (medium sized)
2 eggs (preferably brown)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
Enough oil to cover pancakes while frying
Sour cream and applesauce to serve with
Pepper to taste

Chop and grate potatoes into large bowl. Ensure extra liquid is removed. Chop onion into small pieces or grate. Combine eggs, salt, and flour. Smooth mixture with a spoon. Heat oil in a heavy pan. Using a spoon, drop the batter into the oil. Pancakes should be roughly 3" in diameter. Over medium heat, fry on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serves 4-6

Originally, the cook would sing Hebrew and Yiddish Chanukah songs while preparing this dish, but more recent generations have taken to reciting aspects of the NY State penal code in preparation of the Bar exam.

This author, who spent too much time in New Orleans, insists on adding Tabasco to the recipe.
