How to Make


  • 3 large russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small sweet yellow onion, peeled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil, enough to fill your frying pan 1/2"
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 1 cup Smith's All Natural Sour Cream


  1. Grate potatoes and onion into a large bowl. Drain any excess liquid.
  2. Add eggs, flour and salt to the bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Oil is ready when a drop of the latke batter sizzles.
  4. Use a 1/4-cup measuring cup to scoop latke batter into the hot oil.
  5. Use a spatula to slightly flatten each latke.
  6. Cook until brown and crispy, about 5 minutes, and then flip the latkes.
  7. Cook until the second side is also brown and crispy, about 5 more minutes.
  8. Remove cooked latkes to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  9. Place applesauce in a medium serving bowl.
  10. Place sour cream in a small plastic zip-top bag and cut off a small corner.
  11. Starting at the center of the bowl, create a sour cream spiral on top of the applesauce by squeezing the bag slowly and rotating the bowl.
  12. Serve the bowl of Smith's sour cream applesauce swirl on a large serving platter with the warm fried latkes.

Yield: 8 latkes
