Ellen's Potato Latkes

Ellen's Potato Latkes

1 medium onion
6 medium potatoes (about 2 lbs), peeled
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp matzo meal
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 to 1/3 cup vegetable oil
Sour Cream

Coarsely shred onion into a large bowl. Shred potatoes into bowl with onion, stirring occasionally. The onion will keep the potato from browning. Stir in eggs, matzo meal, parsley, salt and pepper.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add potato mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls into oil. Fry until crisp and golden; turn and fry remaining side until golden--about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to platter and keep warm.

Repeat until all potato mixture has been used, adding oil as necessary.

Serve with applesauce and sour cream. Makes 6 Servings
