Chive Potato Latkes

chive potato latkes
Christieathome & friends would not stop bragging about these latkes so eventually I had to try them. Maybe it’s the potatoes, maybe it’s the chives, maybe it’s Christie (or all of the above), but these latkes are to die for. I ended up making a whole slew of them for the week (and had a very happy week).Here’s her recipe that you should try and share with everyone you know.


  • 2 lb russet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chives, chopped
  • 1 red onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • EVOO
  • plain greek yogurt (or light sour cream)


  1. Prep ingredients above. After mincing red onion, try to drain excess water. You can do this by using a cheese cloth or simply rolling it into a bowl and squeeze between your hands above a bowl. I prefer using my hands.
  2. Shred potatoes using a box grater or food processor (I prefer food processor). Then squeeze out excess liquid like you did with the onions. **This is important, do not skip**
  3. In a mixing bowl, add shredded potatoes, onions, eggs, chives, flour, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Heat EVOO in a large skillet. With a spoon, scoop some of the potato mixture and drop in skillet. Flatten with spatula and let cook until crispy, then flip. Takes about 5 minutes. When done, rest on plate lined with paper towel to absorb oil.
  5. Plate and top with greek yogurt and extra chives.

Plain greek yogurt is a great alternative for sour cream–I promise. I often don’t notice a difference, especially with a few herbs added, such as parsley and chives.
