Herbed Cheddar Latkes

Shredded potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, and fresh herbs, all mixed together and pan-fried into a delicious and crisp potato pancake. Finish these off with a little flaky sea salt for the most addicting and perfect latke, that's just as good as an appetizer as it is as a side dish.

  • 6 medium russet potatoes, grated
  • 1 yellow onion, grated
  • 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh herbs, such as oregano, thyme, and sage
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • flaky salt and fresh chopped chives, for serving
  • plain greek yogurt and apple sauce, for serving


  • 1. Place the potatoes and onion in a large kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. Add to a large mixing bowl along with the bread crumbs, eggs, cheddar cheese, herbs, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Mix to evenly combine. 
    2. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, scoop about 1/4 cup of the potato mix and add to the pan, flattening down with a spatula. Work in batches of 3-4 and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until deeply golden brown and crisp. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and sprinkle with flaky salt.
    3. Serve immediately with applesauce and/or Greek yogurt.


  • To keep the latkes warm, transfer to a wire cooling rack set inside a baking sheet and place in a 250 degree oven for up to 30 minutes.
