If you have some leftover mashed potatoes from last night’s dinner (or last week’s party), you can use them to make this awesome latke recipe. Also called potato pancake, a latke is a fried pancake made of ground or grated potatoes, flour and eggs, and seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. It is a traditional Jewish meal during the Hanukkah festival.
The secret to making a crispy latke is to make use of starchy potatoes. The starchier, the better. Or you can also add some grated raw potatoes to the cooked mashed potatoes to make the latke creamier and crispier.
