Brussels-Sprout-Latke

Brussels Sprout Latkes

My affinity for Brussels sprouts is no secret. I mean, have you seen my Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts? Or what about my Stuffed Brussels Sprouts?! So when came time to experiment with latkes, you just know I had to add Brussels sprouts, right?

Ingredients

 ½ pound Yukon Gold potatoes (2 medium-sized potatoes)
 ½ pound Brussels sprouts (about 12 sprouts)
 2 large eggs
 ¼ cup matzo meal
 1 teaspoon salt
 ¼ cup olive oil
 1 green onion, chopped
 Freshly Ground Black pepper
Yields1 Serving
Prep Time20 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time30 mins

Instructions

1

Remove any dark spots from 1/2 pound of potatoes and trim the ends of 1/2 pound of Brussels sprouts.

2

Run the potatoes, length-wise, through a food processor or use a cheese grater. This is very important when making latkes. You want to remove any excess water from the base. I roll the potatoes in a towel, then place them in a colander to dry. You can also use cheesecloth. You just want them to be very dry.

3

Shred the Brussels sprouts.

4

Whisk 2 eggs and then whisk in 1/4 cup of Matzo Meal flour and 1 teaspoon of salt.

5

Work in the potatoes until they are completely covered.

6

Then fold in the shredded Brussels sprouts. I do this because I want that green to pop!

7

Add enough oil to an iron skillet so that it's about 1/4? deep, and then warm it over a medium high heat until it is shimmering.

8

Drop a heap of the latke mixture into the skillet and flatten it out, letting it sizzle. Cook it for about 2 minutes, until the edges are golden and crispy. Then flip.

9

When cooked on both sides, remove from the skillet and place on a towel to remove the excess oil.

10

Serve with a spoonful of sour cream on top, garnish with green onions and fresh ground pepper.
