Ingredients

  • 3 medium peeled potatoes , preferably Yukon Gold
  • 1 large peeled sweet potato
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Using the large holes on a box grater or food processor, grate peeled potatoes. Squeeze as much liquid as you can from potatoes. Place on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Cover with more towels and press down. Thinly slice onion. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with flour, baking powder, parsley, celery salt, salt and pepper. Add onion and potatoes. Stir to evenly mix.
  • Pour enough oil into a large deep frying pan (do not use non-stick) to come 1/2 in. (1 cm) up the side and set over medium-high. When hot, pack potato mixture into 1/4 cup (50 mL) dry measure. Carefully turn into pan and flatten slightly using a fork or spatula. Repeat, fitting 2 more latkes in pan. Do not crowd pan. Fry until golden, 3 to 4 min. per side. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
