  • 4 Russet potatoes (each potato = about 8 ounces)
  • 1 small yellow onion (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t . olive oil
  • 3/4 t . sea salt
  • 1/4-1/2 t . black pepper
  • coconut oil or butter , for greasing muffin cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grate the potatoes and place them in a colander to drain a bit.
  3. Mix the egg, olive oil, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.
  4. Grate the onion and mix it with the egg.
  5. Place the grated potatoes in a clean tea towel and squeeze the excess moisture out. (Don't stress yourself out doing this, just get most of it.)
  6. Mix the grated, squeezed potatoes with the onion/egg mixture. (I use my hands for this to make sure the egg gets pretty evenly disbursed.)
  7. Liberally oil two 12-cup muffin pans.
  8. Pack in the potato mix to each muffin cup so that it is about 1/3 full. (You should get 18-24 latkes.)
  9. Bake the latkes for 35-40 minutes until tops are golden (see below).
  10. To release them, run a knife around the perimeter and use a small spoon to scoop them out.
  11. Enjoy while warm.
