These are so easy and will “wow” your Thanksgivukkah crowd: all the wonderful tastes of the beloved green bean casserole rolled into a latke!! Also, no Cream of Mushroom soup involved so it can be eaten with a meat meal.
Ingredients: Makes 6-7 small latkes
½ package French cut frozen green beans
2 Tbls. water
1 cup fresh mushrooms, roughly chopped
1 Tbls. olive oil
3 Tbls. matzo meal
1 Tbls. golden mushroom soup
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder
½ tsp. salt
1 egg or ¼ tsp. egg substitute
1 cup French Fried Onions (French’s), crushed
Olive oil for frying
- Place green beans with 2 Tbls. water in covered microwave safe dish and microwave for 10-11 minutes; drain.
- Sauté mushrooms in 1 Tbls. olive oil in frying pan on medium high heat for about 2 minutes until golden brown.
- In mixing bowl, place green beans, sautéed mushrooms and remaining ingredients except French Fried Onions. Form into small patties.
- Dip in crushed French fried onions (I crush them in my hands) and fry in 3 Tbls. olive oil heated on medium high heat. Fry until golden brown, 3 minutes or so per side.
Tip: You can easily double this recipe. Also, they can be made up to a day in advance and then reheated in a 350°F oven for 6-7 minutes or until hot.
