Potato Latkes

Potato Latkes , or Jewish Potato Pancakes, are not the healthiest dish in the world but they are such a delicious treat! Once in a while they aren’t so bad for you. Served for a number of Jewish holidays, especially at Rosh Hashanah. You’ll need quite a bit of oil for these potatos (they’re like a deep fried mash potato, if you’re unsure!). You can try making them with a little less oil but if you eat them infrequently, treat yourself and follow my recipe!
