Tsuni's Potato Latkes

  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 10m


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated onions
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs or matzo meal
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 large red bliss potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 cup of oil, butter or schmaltz (rendered chicken fat)



Beat the eggs. Add the onions, salt, pepper, crumbs, lemon juice and thyme. Grate the potatoes on a medium fine grater. Squeeze in a towel to remove as much water as possible. Add to the egg mixture.

Heat half the oil in a frying pan, and drop the potato mixture into it by the tablespoonful, adding oil as required. Fry over medium heat until browned on both sides. Drain in a paper bag or paper towels, and keep warm in oven until all are fried.
