  • Reviews

  • “I was trying to decide which baked latke recipe to follow and after reading all the reviews about this one, I had to go for it and boy, am I glad I did. These were delicious and I felt good about eating them plus they really are easy to make.I’ve tried other latke recipes but this is definitely the best. Thanks so much for this fantastic recipe!”

  • “We love latkes, and this recipe did not dissapoint.Easy enough for a quick dinner.My flour is a white/wheat blend and I left off the salt and pepper because I served them with homemade applesauce.Also, just sprayed my pans with spray instead of using the oil called for.Lovely dinner.Good consistency and every bite was enjoyed!”

  • “These were good. I was surprised by how crispy they got just from baking and not frying. I used pre-shredded frozen potatoes, cause i’m lazy and put the chives in the potatoes, not just to garnish. Very good, thanks! “

  • “Traditional or not, these are just so delicious, and that’s what counts!Quick and easy to make, fabulously clear instructions and because they are also low in fat, I know I’ll be making these often.I’ve already made them twice in recent weeks.The second time I made these, I used a brown onion (same as what Americans call a yellow onion) and 3 cloves of garlic, all minced.We all liked these so much that the second time, they were eaten as the main course – how’s that for decadence! – with dollops of (not-so-low in fat) Greek yoghurt, and a simple tomato salad and kalamata olives.Yum!Just thinking about it makes me want to make them again!”

  • “Made for a side dish for dinner tonight, and after reading the other reviews, I agree.. DEFINATELY DELICIOUS !!..Loved theseLoved these.. Made for Cookbook Tag..”

  • “Hi Mirj, made these for our meal for Rosh Hashonah and they were fabulous! Instead of a red onion, we used a vidalia. Also, used some scallions and some black pepper, otherwise I followed the recipe as posted. It was delicious and we served it with dill sour cream. I loved the fact that it was made in the oven. Thanks for sharing, Diane:)”

  • “We totally loved these latkes, Mirj.Mine looked nothing like Thorstens..lol..they were more your “rustic” latkes, with wonderful crispy and crunchy bits on the outside….yummo!!! We loved these crunchy treats and will certainly be making them again!”

  • “Thanks Mirj, you have shown me the way to make potato fritters easy-peasy and so tasty. They were done in minutes and came out of the oven so delicious. They remind me of traditional fried potato fritters, but these are more healthy (no fat). I’ve had them withcoarse rye bread and sugar beet molasses. Thank you for this this non-traditional way to make great Latkes (potato fritters). A real keeper. Will make them often from now on. My suggestion: try these Latkes, you wil love them.”
