Please click here and discover Gina Seeman’s amazing and delicious homemade recipes for Potato Latke’s, Baked Salmon, Salmon Spread and Applesauce. We hope you Enjoy!

Simply Potato Latkes

Ingredients

  • 20 oz. bag of Simply Potatoes Hash Browns (or frozen, thawed hash browns)
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½  tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium yellow or sweet onion, finely diced
  • Canola or vegetable oil for frying

 

In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the baking soda. Add in the flour, salt, onion, and eggs, then mix thoroughly.

Over medium-high heat, heat about ¼ inch of canola oil until the surface shimmers. To test if the oil is hot enough, drop in a small bit of the latke mixture. If it sizzles, you are good to go.

Scoop ¼ cup of the mixture onto a slotted spoon.  Dollop the latke mixture into the oil and flatten the mound out with the back of the spoon. Fry until the edges start getting golden brown, about 4 minutes. Then, using the spoon and a flexible, heatproof spatula, flip each latke carefully.

Fry until the other side is also golden brown, another 4 minutes or so. When the latkes are fully cooked, put them on a cookie sheet lined with a paper towel or paper grocery bag. Put the cookie sheet in a 170°F oven to keep warm, and repeat the process until all of the potato mixture is used up.

Makes 15 to 18 3-inch Latkes

Serve with Apple Sauce and Sour Cream

Enjoy!!!!

Salmon Spread

Ingredients

  • 8 oz skinless salmon fillet, cooked and flaked
  • 4 oz soft cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

 

Beat cream cheese until soft and fluffy.  Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper.  Mix well.

Fold in the flaked salmon.  Adjust seasonings to taste.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors.

Serve with crackers, mini bagels, or toasted French bread slices.

Baked Salmon

Gina Seeman

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 16 oz Salmon Fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Butter or Margarine, cut into 8 pieces

Spray a foil lined baking sheet with nonstick spray.  Arrange salmon on sheet.  Place on each piece of salmon 2 dots of butter. 

Bake at 350° F for 15 – 20 minutes.   Garnish with lemon slices.

Uncooked Applesauce

Ingredients

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 12 medium apples, unpeeled
  • Cinnamon

 

Combine half each of honey and lemon juice in blender container

Wash, core and slice half of the apples into the syrup and blend one minute

Add cinnamon to taste

Transfer mixture to bowl

Repeat with remaining honey, lemon juice, apples and cinnamon

Makes about 6 cups  (Or as I say, a lot)

I have found you need to put the apples in one at a time and depending on the size and power of your blender, you may have to do only 3 apples at a time.

HAPPY CHANUKAH!!!
