Reviews forPotato Latkes
"I made these last night for dinner and everyone loved them. I did fry them up and keep them in a 200 degree oven until all of them were cooked so no one was waiting or eating cold ones. I didn't have any scallions but I do have a bunch of chive plants so I used those instead."
