No grease, no frying, no mess!

 (Just make sure you have a waffle maker before you begin)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shredded potatoes – approximately 10 ounces
  • ½ cup shredded sweet onion
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
  • Olive oil cooking spray

 

Instructions:

  1. Toss potatoes, onion and salt in a large bowl. Transfer to a sieve set over a medium bowl; let drain for about 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat a classic waffle iron to high.
  3. Squeeze the potato mixture, a handful at a time, over the bowl to release excess moisture – allow some moisture to remain.
  4. Pour out the liquid and return the squeezed potato mixture to the bowl. Stir in egg and pepper.
  5. Spray the waffle maker. Place a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture in each quadrant and spread each to a 2-inch-wide circle. Close the lid and cook the latkes until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Makes 4 servings. Count each serving as a starch.
