Our latkes are crispy and stay that way with clever use of using only egg whites making them perfect as a side for a holiday feast, or just by themselves cozied up with your favorite toppings.
Yield: About 20, 3-inch pancakes
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and several layers of paper towels.
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes, onion, egg whites, potato starch, and Lake Shore Drive seasoning. Stir to combine. If the mixture is very loose, add more potato starch, a little at a time.
Heat a large skillet with ½-inch of oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, make a “tester” latke and add to pan. Fry until crispy and brown on 1 side and turn and cook the other side. Taste for seasoning. Adjust with additional salt and pepper if needed.
Now make latkes! As latkes come out of the pan, transfer to lined baking sheet. Reheat for just a few minutes in preheated oven before serving.
