It turns out that latkes don’t actually have to be round. What makes a latke a latke is not its circular shape but that the potatoes are mixed in an egg batter and then fried. The latke batter for these unique latkes — which consists of Yukon gold potatoes, onions, eggs, potato starch and matzah meal — is poured into a large sheet pan and par-baked so that it is 80% done and keeps its shape when cut. The giant latke is then cut into rectangles, and then fried to perfection.
