Potato Latkes, Jeffrey Nathan's (D/P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Jeffery Nathan (by web but also in his book)
Yield: 20

2-1/2 pounds russet potatoes
1 medium onion
1/2 cup matzo meal
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 bunch chives, diced
White pepper
Salad oil, as needed

Alternately grate potato and onion into a bowl. Using hands, squeeze out excess moisture.

Combine well with all the other ingredients.

In a sauté pan carefully drop spoonfuls of mixture into hot oil, press with a spoon and fry until golden on both sides.

Serve with applesauce or sour cream.

Poster's Notes:
The recipe is from the web, and the latke excellent (couldn't resist, I tasted one!). The patent of grating one potato one onion to prevent discoloration is a keeper. After frying you can freeze each latke in foil according the book.
