Baked Latkes with Chunky Applesauce

Latkes are something that I absolutely adore. I had a sweet potato and two regular Idaho potatoes laying around as well as couple apples that were starting to look a little funky, and this was the result. I just wish I had a little dollop of sour cream to go with it.

Baked Latkes are exactly the same as the fried ones, so pick your own adventure

preheat oven to 450 degrees


4 potatoes
1 onion

squeeze out any extra liquid

1 egg
1 t salt
4 T flour

mix together with potatoes and onion
squeeze out any extra liquid

put a generous amount of oil in a baking sheet/pan with edges
make latkes into patties in the oil, flatten with a spatula

bake 10 minutes (or until bottoms are golden brown and crispy)
flip and bake another 10 minutes

for the apple sauce, just cut up some (I used 3) old apples, sprinkle a little bit of sugar on top (depending on the taste of the apple), and a squeeze of lemon if you so desire. add water up to about an inch up the pan. simmer until soft. drain excess liquid if it's there.
