Day 4: Potato Latkes Breakfast

So, i’m all about potatoes. Mashed, baked, TWICE baked, scalloped whatever.

Potatoes = good.

So when 12 Days of Breakfast was created, OBVIOUSLY, I had to include a potato recipe in the series.  These potato latkes are pretty delicious and they make a PERFECT breakfast.  I like to serve mine with a fried egg on top but you could easily serve them as a side to your standard eggs and bacon meal, and easily impress on Christmas morning.


  • 2 cups shredded potato
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion (finely diced)
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil to fry (I use vegetable)



  1. Grate potatoes using a cheese grater, then place in a cheese of washcloth and wring out as much water as possible.*
    NOTE* if you have extra time you can spread them out on a cool cookie sheet and have them sit out to dry a bit more.  Do not try to cook them in the oven a bit to get out the excess water…you will have to start all over again!
  2. Add potatoes, onion, egg and flour into a mixing bowl and mix together.  Season generously with salt and pepper
  3. Add spoonfuls into frying pan and flatten with a spatial and allow to fry (about 2 minutes each side or until golden brown)*
    NOTE* Be careful when you flip them!  Use a spatula and a fork to flip slowly so you don’t splash oil all over the place like an asshole.
  4. Serve with a perfectly fried egg on top and EAT!
