Why I Love This Recipe

From Cooking Light. For the best texture, grate all ingredients by hand.


Ingredients You'll Need

3 1/2 cups shredded peeled baking potato (about 1 1/2 pounds)

1 1/4 cups grated onion

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 large egg

1/4 cup olive oil, divided

3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

Dash of ground cinnamon


Directions

1. Combine potato and onion in a colander. Drain 30 minutes, pressing with the back of a spoon until barely moist. Combine potato mixture, flour, and next 4 ingredients (through egg) in a large bowl; toss well.


2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Spoon 1/4 cup potato mixture loosely into a dry measuring cup. Pour mixture into pan, and flatten slightly. Repeat procedure 5 times to form 6 latkes. Sauté 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove latkes from pan, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and potato mixture to yield 12 latkes total. Combine applesauce and ground cinnamon in a bowl. Serve applesauce with latkes.
