Sara's Latkes

Leif's great-grandfather loved these, and his daughter made his favorites.

Ingredients

2large russet potatos, peeled
½onion
½ tspsalt
(as needed)cracker meal
1egg

Directions

Grate the potatos and onions, add salt, and mix together. Gradually add cracker meal, mixing continuously, until the liquid is all absorbed. Mix in egg. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased frying pan, cook one side until browned, flip and cook other side until browned. Serve with sour cream and applesauce.

Modifications

Instead of cracker meal, you can use crushed saltines, bread crumbs, or flour. To minimize the need for cracker meal or its substitutes, you can drain the potato and onion mix before adding the salt.
