I’ll be honest. It feels like I’ve been working on this recipe for years!
I’ve tried many times to make the perfect, gluten-free & paleo potato latke, but try as I might (and I tried a lot), I just didn’t master it until 2017.
Now, as listed in the title, this recipe is for oven baked (i.e. oven fried) latkes. I made the recipe this way not necessarily because baking latkes (this way) is healthier (don’t get me wrong, these latkes have tons of health promoting ingredients in them), but because I’m a new Mom and a busy Mom. As much as in the past I would have been perfectly happy to stand in front of the stove flipping latkes for hours til my hearts delight, that doesn’t really work for my schedule anymore.
Baking latkes is easier because I put all of the latkes in the oven at once, set them and forget them until the timer goes off 12-15 minutes later. And then, it’s just a bunch of batch flipping before finishing. No flipping and checking, flipping and checking, which is what I end up doing when I pan fry them. To me, that’s waaay easier.
