Potato Latkes

This is an easy recipe for making Latkes, adapted from Ina Garten's classic recipe. We served them with creme fraiche and applesauce, and I loved both, but creme fraiche with chives and flaky salt and fresh black pepper is definitely more my style. If you want to get even fancier, try some smoked salmon on top.
