With Hanukkah just around the corner, my mind is on Latkes.

Of course, I really cannot call these bacon-studded babies ‘latkes’, so we’ll go with Potato Pancakes even though I always think of those as made with mashed potatoes instead of grated.

No matter, this goyum adores latkes/potato pancakes and this version is really special. No flour and they are really light from separating the eggs and folding the whipped whites into the batter. The bacon just gilds the lily.

The salad is a lovely accompaniment. Salty feta playing against tart cranberries, crunchy almonds and a tangy-sweet dressing.

Ingredients:

6 large baking potatoes, peeled and grated
1 large onion, grated
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 eggs, separated
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled (save bacon grease)
Vegetable Oil for frying
Sour cream and applesauce, to serve

Directions:

1. Squeeze grated potatoes to remove as much liquid as possible.

2. Combine potatoes, onion, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add baking powder and egg yolks.

3. Beat egg whites in another bowl until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Fold into potato mixture and add bacon.

4. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in large nonstick pan along with the bacon grease until very hot.

5. Drop batter by large spoonfuls into hot oil. When browned turn over to cook the other side.

This song is sufficiently entertaining and different enough to appeal to me. Try not to tap your foot. And resist joining in on the lo-fi fun by playing along with your kazoo.

The tag is ‘Country-Gay’, whatever that is.

Cheers!
