Low Fat Potato Latkes

Low Fat Potato Latkes

Fiona Haynes
You don't have to wait for Hanukkah to enjoy potato latkes. These low fat latkes are delicious any time. To make them crispy, be sure to squeeze out as much moisture as you can, and preheat the cookie sheet before placing the latkes on it. Enjoy these low fat potato latkes with fat-free sour cream and some home-made applesauce.

Good but Hannukah is about oil, Member lesleyprince

These oven baked latkes are tasty but latkes are all about the oil as is the celebration of Hannukah. I allow myself the yearly indulgence. (Do lightly brown the baked version very quickly under the broiler if the baked version isn't crispy - but watch them carefully.)
