Hanukkah is officially here, and to celebrate the holiday, we wanted to share a recipe from our very own agent Layne Kramer, called “The Best Latke Hack Ever”:
Step 1: buy frozen, pre-shredded hash brown potatoes in the freezer section
Step 2: mix with egg and flour and then fry
2.5 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 egg, beaten, 1 tbsp flour, matzo meal or gluten-free flour
¼ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
Thaw potatoes by leaving them at room temperature for an hour, or defrosting in the microwave.
Mix potatoes with beaten eggs and flour (or matzo meal, or gluten-free flour). Add salt and pepper
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry latkes until golden on each side.
We know the holidays might look different this year thanks to COVID-19, but here’s hoping that your holiday is still filled with love and light.
