I have been exposed to so many hash brown discs of the sort such as fritters and croquettes, my mind is blown with the endless options. For the most part the same base ingredients are used. Additional ingredients are what give each potato pancake their character and individual style. No latke is ever the same.
I chose to use purple potatoes which give us some great texture and a few pinches of cayenne powder for some kick. Serve traditionally, with applesauce or sour cream.
