Latkes are a great potato side dish everyone loves. Be sure to serve with plenty of sour cream and applesauce.
- 2 cups coarsely grated potatoes, peeled
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 pint sour cream
- 1 cup applesauce
- peanut oil for frying
Squeeze as much of water out of potatoes as possible. In a bowl, mix with the remaining ingredients. Place a bit of the mixture spread out to 4 inches in a frying pan containing a little peanut oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve the pancakes with a bit of sour cream and applesauce on top of each.
