Potato Latkes, "Lite" (P)
Source: Weight Watchers
Serves: 8

1-1/4 pounds potatoes, peeled and shredded
2 medium egg whites
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 medium scallions, minced
3/4 teaspoon table salt
4 teaspoons vegetable oil

Soak the potatoes in cold water 30 minutes; drain and blot dry. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, combine the potatoes, egg whites, flour, scallions, and salt. Form into 12 pancakes.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat one third of the oil. Cook the pancakes, 4 at a time, until just golden, about 2 minutes on each side; transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining oil and pancakes. Bake until crisp and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
