Mom's Potato Latkes

Mom's Potato Latkes
  • 3 cups shredded potato
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 saltine crackers, or as needed, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. Mix potato, onion, eggs, crackers, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.
  2. Pour enough vegetable oil into a skillet to fill about 1/2-inch deep; heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the potato mixture, first pressing potato mixture against the side of the bowl to remove excess liquid, into the hot oil; slightly flatten the latkes into the oil with the back of your spoon so they are evenly thick.
  4. Cook in hot oil until browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain latkes on a plate lined with a paper towel.
