Potato Latkes with Goat Cheese


From 'Ring Out Your Jewishness'  by Binnie Williams

Peel the potatoes, grate them and put them in a bowl. Pick up a handful of potatoes and squeeze as much liquid as possible out of them, discarding the liquid. When you have squeezed all the potatoes, put them back in the bowl. Add the eggs, flour, salt, pepper and parsley and mix well. You can add the finely chopped onion if you want. Put a few tablespoons of oil in a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan and heat well over a medium-high flame. Put spoonfuls of the mixture into the oil and fry until the edges turn brown and crisp. Turn over and fry until golden brown. Place the cooked pancakes on a baking dish and keep in a warm oven until ready to serve with goat cheese.
