POTATO LATKES CAN BE MADE LOW FAT AND MAKE A HEARTY BREAKFAST!
1 potato, shredded (If I had a sweet potato I would prefer to use that)*
1/2 c instant mashed potatoes
1/4 c all purpose baking mix (bisquick)
1/4 c milk
2 Tbsp low fat sour cream
1/2 cup chopped peppers
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 oz canned mushroom slices drained
*I THINK FROZEN HASH BROWNS WOULD WORK WELL TOO IF YOU’RE PRESSED FOR TIME!
Add first 6 ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well. Fold in the vegetables – the batter will be thicker than pancake mix. Coat a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place on medium high heat. Place large scoops of batter (about 1/2 cup each) onto skillet and flatten somewhat (Mine made 4 large latkes). Cook about 5 minutes each side turning carefully.
I FROZE MY LATKES WITH A PIECE OF WAXED PAPER BETWEEN THEM. THEN I CAN TAKE ONE OUT ON THE WEEKEND AND A TURKEY SAUSAGE BREAKFAST LINK AND MICROWAVE A SATISFYING BREAKFAST IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS. SOMETIMES I LIKE TO ADD KETCHUP OR A LITTLE SALT AND PEPPER.
