“This recipe is on http://www.thekosherchannel.com where you can find out lots of interesting things about Hanukkah. Getting the consistency right is important. Shred, then lightly chop, the potato and onion. A food processor works best. Brushing a bit of oil in the muffin tin cups helps them brown nicely. And be sure the oven is preheated to 425 degrees before baking. Happy Hanukkah!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Drain potato to remove most liquid but do not squeeze. Place shredded potato and onion in the work bowl of a food processor. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Pulse just until ingredients are mixed well and the potatoes are grated, not pureed.
  4. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Then, using a pastry brush, brush each cup with vegetable oil. This helps to make crispy latkes. Fill each cup 1/3 full for large muffin tin and 3/4 full for small cups.
  5. Bake on a middle rack 30-45 minutes (depending on the muffin tin size) until puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven and turn latkes onto a baking pan and serve immediately.
  6. You may hold latkes until serving time or freeze them for later use. If I do this, I under cook them just a bit till golden, but not browned. Then I return them in the baking pan to a preheated 425 degree oven and bake 10 minutes until crisp.
