Crispy Oven-Baked Potato Latkes
Author: 
Serves: 25 Latkes
 
Ingredients
  • 5 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • Olive oil spray or any non stick cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. Grate the potatoes and onion. Add in the olive oil, egg, salt and pepper and mix.
  3. Spray your cupcake baking pan well with the oil. Use a tablespoon to distribute the mixture. Do not use all the liquid in the bowl, You should have just a little, otherwise squeeze out most of it.
  4. Do not fill the cupcake pan too high. You want them to be flatter just like regular latkes.
  5. After they are all in, press them down a bit then spray the tops with the oil.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until the tops are browned a little. If the tops aren’t browning for you, put the oven on broil for a few minutes and the tops should brown nicely.
  7. Allow to cool and use a spoon to go around the edges and under the latkes to lift out of the pan.
Notes
These turn out best in aluminum pans. I've been told by others that they worked fine in regular muffin/cupcake metal pans, though that hasn't been the case for me.
Time needed may vary so keep an eye on the oven.
Serve with unsweetened applesauce or sour cream.
