Chef Dave Foster makes traditional latkes that anyone can enjoy.
4 cups shredded russet potato
2 cups grated onion
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large egg
2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup applesauce
1 cup sour cream
Grate potato and onion into larger bowl then add flour, salt, pepper and eggs, toss well.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup oil to pan, and swirl to coat.
Spoon a small amount of potato mixture into the pan strategically so you can fit a whole bunch more. Flatten slightly.
Repeat procedure until you have filled the pan.
Sauté until golden brown, maybe 4 to 5 minutes.
Gently flip them over and cook.
Remove latkes from pan, and keep warm. Serve applesauce or sour cream with latkes
