  • 1 ½ lb potatoes grated and well drained (or 3 ½ cups defrosted frozen hash browns)
  • 1 cup grated onion
  • ½ cup chopped scallion
  • 6 TB flour
  • 1 tsp minced fresh thyme
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp kosher salt plus additional for garnish
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Press any remaining water from potatoes and onion with paper towel in a strainer. Combine potatoes, onion, scallions, flour, thyme, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Use a ¼ cup measure to scoop mixture into your hands and press into a ¼” thin, 3” round pancake.
  2. Place all pancakes on work surface and spray both sides lightly with cooking spray. Place 8 pancakes on each prepared baking sheet and roast in oven for 30 minutes total until well browned; turn pancakes and rotate pan positions every 10 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with additional kosher salt when serving.
Recipe Notes

If you prefer your latkes on the darker side, try a 425 oven but watch out for burning!
