These small holiday favorites are packed with flavor. You will enjoy them as part of the Hanukkah celebration, or you can eat them for breakfast with eggs, as a side dish, or an appetizer. They are delicious topped with apple sauce or a dollop of sour cream and garnished with finely chopped chives.


  • 8 medium (3lb) potatoes rinsed and ends removed
  • 2 onions finely chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper fresh ground
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or all-purpose gluten free flour)
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 cups Salute Santé! Grapeseed Oil
  • sour cream or apple sauce to taste
  • 1 tbsp chives finely chopped


  • Rinse and trim the skin off the potatoes and shred using a grater, either a hand grater or KitchenAid shredder (4 medium potatoes is about 5 cups shredded).
  • Strain grated potatoes to remove liquid.
  • Finely chop onions.
  • Place shredded potatoes and chopped onions in a large mixing bowl and toss with sea salt, then chopped parsley.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the eggs, all-purpose flour and black pepper.
  • Stir in the potato mixture. The mixture will be lumpy.
  • Heat the grapeseed oil in a non-stick skillet on medium-low heat.
  • For each pancake, pour 1⁄4 cup of batter into the pan and cook 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown.
  • When finished cooking, remove the pancakes from the pan and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil or straining rack for oil to drip.
  • Serve warm.
  • Optional: top with apple sauce or sour cream and finely chopped chives.


This recipe will make about 30 potato pancakes. The addition of 1-3 Tbsp of grapeseed flour can add a nutritional boost!
