Potato Latkes with Caramelized Onion Sour Cream

Share

These Potato Latkes with Caramelized Onion Sour Cream are one of my favorite easy Hanukkah appetizer recipes and I am so happy to share this recipe with you today. Who doesn’t love a latke? Golden and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These are improved by adding caramelized onion sour cream and chopped scallions when serving.

To make these, start by caramelizing onions with sugar and combining them with sour cream for the topping. Shred potato, onion, and garlic and sprinkle with salt. Leave to drain in a colander lined with cheesecloth. Once drained, combine with bread crumbs, lemon juice, eggs and season with black pepper and mix in the scallions. Cook in batches in hot oil until golden brown on each side. Serve the latkes warm with caramelized onion sour cream and sprinkled with chopped scallions.
