1) Peel and grate potatoes. Once grated, strain potatoes through a colander, pressing out excess water.

2) In a large bowl, combine grated potatoes, beaten eggs, grated onions, chopped shallots, flour, salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.

3) In a deep pan over medium-high heat, heat 1/4 inch of oil until hot. Using your hands, form latke patties from mixture and gently place into the hot oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until latkes are crispy and golden.

4) Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate or drying rack. Continue with remaining potato mixture until it’s used up, adding more oil to the pan when necessary.

5) Serve alongside sour cream and apple sauce. Enjoy! You can keep them warm in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
