Making this your best Hanukkah dish starts with choosing the right ingredients, such as the potatoes (russets are tops for their high starch and low moisture content). We've also found that a small amount of baking powder makes them lighter and airier than using eggs alone. Finishing these baked latkes in the oven ensures they come out hot and crispy.

  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 medium onion, grated
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • ⅓ cup white whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil, divided
  • Chopped chives for garnish


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Whisk eggs, onion, baking powder, pepper and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl.
  3. Shred potatoes on a box grater set over a clean kitchen towel. Wrap the potatoes in the towel and squeeze out the liquid until they are very dry. Stir potatoes into the egg mixture to combine. Add flour and gently stir to combine.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet, preferably cast-iron, over medium-high heat. Make 4 latkes at a time, using about ¼ cup of batter for each and pressing down with the back of a spatula to form thin, uniform patties. Cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet. Make 2 more batches with the remaining batter, adding 1 tablespoon of the oil to the pan for each batch.
  5. Bake the latkes until heated through, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Top with chives, if desired.
