These potato pancakes really take it up a notch. For the standard recipe go here. Make these about the size of a half dollar to really crisp them up all the way through.
These make great appetizers and can be topped with all sorts of toppings and dipped into all sorts of dips. That was a poorly constructed sentence.
- 3 cups shredded red potatoes skin still on
- 2 green onions minced
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp white truffle oil
- oil for pan frying
Place shredded potatoes in a dish towel and ring out as much liquid as possible. Mix everything but the oil for frying together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium. Add a tablespoon of oil and then a spoonful of batter. Press latke into an even circle and cook until browned and crispy on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.
