  1. Shred the potatoes using a hand grater or food processor.
  2. Place the shredded potatoes in a large bowl and fill with cold water. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes into a colander; rinse & dry the bowl for later.
  4. Place the drained shreds onto the center of a clean and dry dish towel, with the minced onion on top.
  5. Squeeze to remove excess liquid.
  6. Turn the potato shreds into the large bowl.
  7. Preheat waffle iron to medium.
  8. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the salt and pepper and add to the potato.
  9. Using a spoon or clean hands, mix thoroughly.
  10. For a double waffle iron, scoop the mixture into a 3/4 cup measure, and gently press out excess liquid.
  11. Dump the pressed potato mixture onto one side of the waffle iron, and repeat for the other side.easy gluten-free potato latkes
  12. Gently spread the mixture into round shapes. It will not reach the edges.
  13. Close the waffle iron and cook for 6-9 minutes, depending on your iron.
  14. When done, use a fork to remove the latke from the iron. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  15. Not crispy enough? Toss them under the broiler for a few minutes and enjoy!
