Trader Joe’s Potato Pancakes (Traditional Latkes) Review

Trader Joe's Potato Pancakes (Traditional Latkes)

While the Freezer Meal Frenzy staff eats a lot of food, we’re not all that familiar with traditional potato latkes. We can tell you what Trader Joe’s Potato Pancakes taste like, but we can’t compare them to authentic latkes. If you’re curious about this product, but aren’t concerned about authenticity, this review should be enough to satisfy you.

These latkes come with both oven and stovetop instructions. We chose to cook them in a pan, as it seemed like the best fit for potato pancakes. The process was quick and easy, but the cooking method left us with greasy pancakes. We’d suggest following the oven instructions if you’re not a fan of greasy food.

The latkes are small, but they’re also very thick, making them a filling dish. There are eight pancakes per box, which means you’ll have leftovers if you’re eating alone. The combination of onions, potato, and egg are enough to satiate you for quite a while.

These pancakes seem a lot like hash browns at a glance; they have the same crispy exterior as Trader Joe’s Hashbrowns. However, the potatoes are soft and almost doughy on the inside, which makes them feel a lot more like traditional pancakes. Just don’t pair them with maple syrup; these babies are salty and savory! If you’re looking for something to dip them in, we’d suggest ketchup or sour cream.

We’re not sure how Trader Joe’s Potato Pancakes compare to traditional latkes, but we can say that they’re a filling and tasty breakfast food. If you’re looking for a savory frozen breakfast, these little pancakes are a dish worth trying.

Trader Joe’s potato latkes are excellent. I prefer to make in oven or toaster oven.They can pass for homemade. They are not thick, they are not loaded with matzoh meal or flour. They come out crisp on outside, they have enough onion in them. Best served topped with applesauce. Some prefer sugar. I tried honey and it worked. Also some prefer sour cream.
