Hanukkah is officially here, and to celebrate the holiday, we wanted to share a recipe from our very own agent Layne Kramer, called “The Best Latke Hack Ever”:
Step 1: buy frozen, pre-shredded hash brown potatoes in the freezer section
Step 2: mix with egg and flour and then fry
2.5 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 egg, beaten, 1 tbsp flour, matzo meal, or gluten-free flour
¼ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
- Thaw potatoes by leaving them at room temperature for an hour, or defrosting in the microwave.
- Mix potatoes with beaten eggs and flour (or matzo meal, or gluten-free flour). Add salt and pepper
- Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry latkes until golden on each side.
- We know the holidays might look different this year thanks to COVID-19, but here’s hoping that your holiday is still filled with love and light.
