Skip the greasy mess with this healthy latke recipe by frying your potato pancakes in a waffle iron instead. Serve with sour cream and applesauce for dipping.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Toss potato, onion and salt in a large bowl. Transfer to a sieve set over a medium bowl; let drain for about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat a classic waffle iron to high.

  • Squeeze the potato mixture, a handful at a time, over the bowl to release excess moisture (don't oversqueeze--some moisture should remain). Pour out the liquid and return the squeezed potato mixture to the bowl. Stir in egg and pepper.

  • Liberally coat the hot waffle iron with cooking spray. Place a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture in each quadrant and spread each to a 2-inch-wide circle. Close the lid and cook the latkes until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Repeat with the remaining mixture.


Equipment: Waffle iron (not Belgian-style)
