Latkes for two

I love it when my husband starts work from home. It isn't something that happens every day, or even that often. But every once in a while, it happens. When it does, I hop out of bed to make him a nice big breakfast to start his day right. I make him something to eat every morning, but on the days he will be here for a while, I make him a special one. 

Romantic Tip: Get up early and make breakfast in bed for your sweetie. It will most likely lead to other things! ;)

So today I made my hubby Lakes. Latkes are shallow fried pancakes of grated potato, flour, and egg. You can eat them plain, or topped with sour cream or Greek yogurt. My husband likes to add Chorizo and fried eggs to the top of his, so of course that is what I did. 

Latkes for two
1 peeled russet potatos
1/4 cup sweet onion chopped
1/2 TBSP fresh dill chopped fine
1/2 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1 TBSP olive oil

Grate the potato, and onion and mix together. Squeeze out moisture. I did this with a couple paper towels one handful at a time. 
Place each handful in a large bowl.
 Add fresh dill, and flour to the mixture.
Add egg and Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. 
Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. When oil is hot, add mounds of the potato mixture. Turn the heat to medium-high. When the bottom of each latke is nicely browned, flip and brown the other side.
Cooking latkes over medium-high heat turns the outside a nice crispy golden brown and gives the interior a chance to cook through. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with a bit of salt. Serve with sour cream.
