1. Use a clean kitchen towel to squeeze out excess moisture from potatoes (this will help keep latkes from becoming soggy). In a large mixing bowl, mix together potatoes, onion, eggs and salt. Stir in flour. Mix well.  

2. Heat ½  of oil over medium heat until 360-375 °F (we suggest testing with one latke to make sure your oil is hot enough). Carefully drop 1/4 cup amounts of batter onto a hot skillet, leaving space for flipping. Use a spatula to shape into round latkes about ¼ inch thick. Cook latkes for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Gently flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

3. Transfer cooked latkes onto a paper towel-lined plate while cooking remaining latkes. Add more oil as needed. Serve hot with your desired toppings surrounding the latkes for people to help themselves.
