Potato Latke Muffins

Potato Latke Muffins

We use a muffin pan to bake these potato latkes instead of frying, reducing the oil and still keep them crispy.













Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


2 pounds potatoes
Yukon Gold
1 medium onions
5 cloves garlic
minced, more or less to taste
1 cup basil
freshly and finely chopped
1 large eggs
1 large egg whites
½ cup parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
or more to taste
black pepper
to taste


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃) F.

Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

Peel potatoes, grate them through the large holes of a box grater into a large bowl.

Then squeeze grated potatoes in small batches between your hands over the sink to remove excess water.

Grate onion into the same bowl through the same holes.

Stir in garlic, basil, egg and egg white, cheese, oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Place ⅓ cup of the potato mixture into each muffin cup, firmly packing the mixture .

Bake the potato latkes until lightly browned and firm, about 50 minutes.

Cool them in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Don't quite know why, but my latkes stuck horribly to the pan. Even after going around each muffin with a sharp thin knife, the bottoms stuck. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using red bliss potatoes, and sprayed the cups. What I did manage to remove tasted wonderful. I did not make the sauce, but rather served with light sour cream.

This is not only thoughtfully-creative (saving calories, while keeping the essential crispiness), latkas done using this method don't lose one single thing in terms of flavour and that comfort-food satisfaction. Let's face it--we make latkas when we want that feeling of home, and being pampered--and these 'latka muffins' are superb!

This is a great recipe, different way to cook potato latkes, after baking they turned out very nice, golden brown on top and firm, we also made the cranberry pear sauce, serve with latkes, they were delicious together.
