First of all, there’s a good chance that half the things that fall under this fabulous new category of mine will involve being fried. This is because everything becomes 20% more awesome when fried, it’s simply how the world works. Second of all, every time I worry one of my photos might turn out poorly, I’m just going to use Instagram to take that picture. This is because Instagram makes even awful photos look awesome!
Yeah, latkes are freaking awesome as well. I just sorta improv them when I make them, recipe schmecipe I say. So you grate a bunch of potatoes into a bowl, and try to avoid grating your fingers as well. I totally failed on that latter part, much to the chagrin of my thumb, ugh! Dump in an egg, some flour. A bit of pepper. Think I added some garlic as well. Chopped up some green onion for bonus festiveness, mix. Boil oil, plop potato blobs in and fry until delicious. Yay!
Traditionally you’re supposed to eat them with sour cream or applesauce (which tastes a lot better than you might expect it to) but as I had neither, I went the “hash browns” route here, and doused these bad boys in ketchup. Yum!
