I love potato latkes. I usually use this recipe but I wanted to mix it up a bit. Honestly, they were pretty good but not better. The spinach and feta flavor was not as prominent as I had hoped. Maybe I will do a little tweaking of the recipe and try it again. What do you think? Any suggestions? On the plus side, they are very pretty!

Spinach, Feta, and Potato Latkes (recipe from here)

  • 1 pound russet potatoes
  • 1/3 cup onion, minced
  • 4 green onions, just the green parts, diced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Peel and grate the potatoes. In a brown or other dark kitchen towel (potato juice stains), add the grated potatoes. Wring the potatoes out, removing as much liquid as possible. In a bowl, combine the potatoes with the onion, green onions, eggs, dill, feta, spinach, salt, pepper and flour.

Preheat oil in an iron skillet until hot. Form the potato mixture into a patty shape and add to the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels to remove extra oil. Keep warm in a preheated oven. Serve with tzatziki or katsup.
