In celebration of Hanukkah (the Jewish Festival of Lights) my family and I are cooking up some traditional potato latkes served with delicious Tillamook Sour Cream.

Yield: 6 servings

4 cups peeled and shredded potatoes
2 tablespoons grated onion
5 eggs
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons salt
1 cup peanut oil
Tillamook Sour Cream


Peel and wash potatoes and shred in a food processor or by hand. Then place potatoes in a cloth or cheesecloth and wring out as much water as possible. In a bowl, mix the potatoes, onions, eggs, flour, and salt.

Fill a deep skillet with the peanut oil over medium-high heat and heat until hot. Place large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil and press them into patties using a spatula. Brown one side, flip to brown the other side – do this carefully so you don’t splash hot oil. Remove latkes from oil and place on a paper towel to soak up excess oil. Serve hot with a dollop of Tillamook Sour Cream and apple sauce to your liking.

The good news is we can celebrate with latkes for eight days straight!
