Something Oily and Delicious for Chanukah

It is traditional to eat something oily for Chanukah, such as a potato pancake, a.k.a. latke. I made something similar - I think this is more like hash browns. Whatever it is, I love it.



All you do is grate potatoes. Squeeze out all the moisture – really give it a strong squeeze. Melt plenty of butter in a pan. Add a thin layer of grated potato (even thinner than in the picture above). Sprinkle with salt. Flip. Eat. Flip out.


This picture doesn't do it justice, but I can't take a better one because I ate it as I was writing this post.

Ha! That's exactly what I used to eat in the ravenously hungry states of breastfeeding my youngest - I could fry them up with baby on my hip. That and 2 eggs, mmm.

Fried potatoes and butter...I think my imagination can do the math. Amazing!
