Potato Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

Makes 5 latkes

1 lb potatoes

1 egg

2 tbsp flour

¾ cup vegetable oil

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

Peel the potatoes, grate them by hand or in a blender and let them sit in a sieve for about 15 minutes.

In a bowl mix the potatoes with the egg, flour, salt and pepper. Fill a frying pan with the oil and set the burner to high. Make a flat pancake the size of your palm with the dough and place in the pan. Turn the latke over a couple of times, until both sides are golden brown. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Serve hot with apple sauce, sour cream, lachs or salmon roe.
