Actually if you knew what the word “latke” basically means, you’d be laughing about now. Latke basically means a Potato Pancake so, in essence, i’m saying Potato Potato Pancake Pancakes – try saying that phrase 3 times fast (and then return to see how we made homemade Latkes….

It’s really relatively simple. We started by shredding 2 good size Idahoan Potatoes:

To that we added sliced (or chopped) Green Onion (ohhh about 5 or 6 I’d say):

Then some dry potato flakes (like you used for making those instant mashed potatoes):

Last we added 2 eggs:

And mix together (clean hands work well for this part)…

Heat up your oil…. When oil is hot, Use a large spoon to scoop up some of the latke mix and and drop (carefully, of course) into the hot oil…

Fry:
