My Meatless Mondays - Cheese & Red Pepper Latkes

Saturday night, I usually make something different, casual and hopefully appealing.  That might mean pizza or pasta or pancakes  Tonight, I made a brand new recipe, Cheese and Red Pepper Latkes.   There is no way, this was not going to be good but also it was going to be unhealthy.

Despite the last fact, I made the pancakes as described and now, I know how to do this without so much fat and I bet, it will turn out just as good.  I hope to make these again soon and I will share my makeover with you, when this happens.

This is the original recipe with a few modifications.  You can find it online, here.

Cheese & Red Pepper Latkes Recipe  adapted  --  Yield: 12 Servings

2 large onions, finely chopped
2 medium sweet red peppers, finely chopped
1 tablespoon red pepper dip
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and shredded
1cup grated Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 cups shredded Mexican mix
1 cup gluten-free flour mixture
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup olive oil
Minced fresh parsley
In a large skillet, saute onions and red peppers in butter until tender. Add garlic and pepper; cook 1 minute longer.
Transfer to a large bowl. Add the potatoes, cheeses, flour, sour cream and mix well.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into oil; press lightly to flatten. 

Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. 

Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 3 dozen.          

Time to look back at a few of the submissions, last week, for My Meatless Mondays.  Thanks for your support and more important, for these great ideas for meatless dishes.

Lettuce Soup with Goat Cheese Croutons from Galley Kitchen
How about some Rich, Buttery Crackers to have with the lettuce soup, from

After our soup with crackers, let's have Eggplant Parmesan from Kosher Cookbook.                                                 

Our side dish comes from Beyond The Peel, Kabocha Squash Gnocchi.

We need dessert and I am not sure how to make a decision on that.  Such punishment for me having to pick two tempting dishes.  The first is Peanut Butter  Cup Truffles from Suburban Prarie Homemaker

Our second dessert is a light version of Banana Pudding from Imitation by Design.

What a meal, we are having.  Let's see what our meal will be, next week?  Please link up below and thanks.  Linked to Cook Book Sundays  Gallery of Favorites  Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker                 Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits
