How to make it
- Prepare two large baking sheets. non-stick cooking spray. In addition, brush surface of each baking sheet with 1-2 tsp. of oil so that latkes will cook up crispy and golden brown.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. (I have prepared these at 400 degrees F because my oven is very 'hot')
- You can prepare Baked Latkes by grating the potatoes by hand
- Drain excess liquid from potatoes.
- add onions and garlic to a food processor. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. add 2 tsp of olive oil to Latkes
- Drop potato mixture by rounded ice cream scoop onto prepared baking sheets. For mini-latkes, use a teaspoon. Flatten with back of spoon, slightly, so that latkes will be cooked through
- Bake uncovered for about 10 minutes - bottoms should be browned and crisp. Turn latkes over and bake for another 8-10 minutes. If you are worried about browning on the second side, give pan another 'brushing' with a thin coat of oil and then lay latkes back down. Keep an eye on the latkes as they bake to avoid overcooking - crisp and golden brown is what you want.
- Serve right away or store covered to reheat the next day at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
