The Latkes* You Crave

2007 Cookoff Winner

10 White Castle hamburgers
3 eggs
4 cups grated potatoes
1/4 cup grated onion
4 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. ground sage
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Remove the pickles and crumble or dice hamburgers in a large bowl and set aside. Beat eggs until light and foamy. Stir in the grated potatoes, grated onion, flour, seasonings, herbs and combine with the hamburger mixture. Heat 1/8 to 1/4 inch vegetable oil in a large skillet. For each latke, drop about 1/4 cup White Castle potato mixture into the hot oil, fry on each side until golden brown. Add oil to pan as needed, to keep proper depth for frying. Drain latkes well on absorbent paper. This makes about 14-20 of the lightest White Castle Latkes in the Latke-Land. Serve hot, with applesauce, dairy sour cream, apple butter or eat plain. Enjoy. *Latkes are potato pancakes, a traditional Hanukkuh delicacy.
