Jalapeño Potato Latkes with Chipotle Cream and Fried Eggs


My family is so excited that it’s the week of Thanksgiving. We’re putting together our menu today and tommorow, cleaning the house and shopping for our groceries. We went to Target this morning so I could use one of my grocery coupons but they were already out of Butterballs! They said they’d have more tomorrow morning but told me to come by early because it’s the fresh Butterballs that they have on sale.

Tomorrow we’ll shop for all the rest of our fresh ingredients too. I like to make lots of fresh veggie sides and appetizers. Then we’ll prep on Wednesday and do as much as we can so we’re not in the kitchen all day on Thursday. I love Thanksgiving, but I don’t love slaving away in the kitchen all day while the family has fun without me.

Since we’ll have some family in from out of town I wanted to make something fun for Thanksgiving breakfast too, so I’m going to be making these fun potato latkes. These are so easy and delicious. I just start with a bag of Simply potatoes shredded hash browns and mix in an egg, some flour and onions. To make these extra spicy, I added chopped fresh jalapeño for the adults.

Then I just fry them in a little vegetable oil until they’re crispy. For garnish, I mixed a little chipotle peppers in adobo with sour cream and drizzled it on top. Then I chopped a little fresh cilantro and sprinkled it on top and served it with an over easy egg.

If you’re concerned about your eggs be sure to use Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized eggs.  “Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The vast majority of eggs sold in grocery stores are NOT pasteurized. Safest Choice™ offers peace of mind when making recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs, and removes the worry of cross contamination.  Learn more about Safest Choice pasteurization process and find store locations.

    Thank you. I guess I got a little confused (not so difficult at my age) when I was directed to make the Latkes in batches of “…three or four at a time”, but saw there were only to be 4 fried eggs, my head started to spin.

    Again, thank you.
