These latkes come out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside!
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet. Fill a heaping 1/3 cup with the potato mixture and place in the hot skillet, patting down with the bottom of the measuring cup. When browned, flip. Remove finished latkes from pan and blot with paper towels. To keep them warm and crispy until serving, store latkes in a 350 degree oven.
