  • 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.

Tips

Equipment: Waffle iron (not Belgian-style)

The basic recipe was just like the one my family has made for at least 70 years (back to my grandmother making it for her kids) but better because it didn’t leave my mouth coated in grease. Also with the heat on both sides they cooked twice as fast. I substitute zucchini for the potatoes when being strict with carbs. And sweet potatoes and spaghetti squash work well too. I can’t wait to try them on the waffle maker. Read More
