Spanakopita Latkes

FETA AND SPINACH LATKES!

Using a Mandoline with shredding attachment is a nice way of changing it up this year! You’ll get long, tangled strands of potato this way. Mix it with lots of crumbled feta & spinach to give it that Spanakopita taste. Serving it with Tzaziki made with sour cream is the perfect accompaniment! Happy Hanukkah!

Equipment

  • Mandoline with Shred Attachment

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb Yukon Gold Potatoes (or Russet) peeled and shredded on mandoline with shred attachment… the finer the better!
  • 1/2 large yellow onion , grated and excess water squeezed out
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 9 oz package frozen spinach , thawed and excess water squeezed out
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper
  • canola oil for frying
  • flakey sea salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 200˚F. Place a cooling rack onto a baking sheet.
  • Combine the shredded potatoes, grated onion, feta cheese, spinach, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk egg in a separate bowl and combine with the potato mixture.
  • Heat a large skillet with 1/3” of oil over medium-low heat.
  • Fry the latkes by measuring out a ¼ cup of mix and squeezing out all the liquid and placing them in the hot oil. Flatten out a bit like a pancake.
  • Fry for 2 ½ – 3 minutes per side in batches making sure not to crowd the pan. (Add more oil if needed between batches.)
  • Remove the latkes from the oil and transfer to the cooling rack. Sprinkle with Maldon or flaky sea salt and keep warm in the pre-heated oven until ready to serve.
  • Serve with the tzaziki sauce on the side.
