Cosmic Crisp Potato Latkes

Skill level: Easy

These apple and potato latkes (or fritters... whichever you prefer) can be cooked in a stovetop skillet OR in the air fryer! Cosmic Crisp apples are perfect for cooking which is why they make a delicious addition to a classic recipe. Served with honey mustard for a dippable snack!


  • 1 Cosmic Crisp apple, grated and juice squeezed out
  • 1 lb 8oz medley potatoes (4 cups grated)
  • 1 egg or flax egg (mix 1 tablespoon flax + 3 Tbsp warm water and refrigerate for 15 min before using)
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard (plus more for serving)
  • Olive oil for cooking



  1. Grate your apple (core removed), then squeeze out excess juice with paper towels or cheesecloth.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the grated apple, grated potatoes, egg, breadcrumbs, spices, and 1 tablespoon of the honey mustard.
  3. Preheat a frying pan on the stovetop, then form patties with your hand, approximately 2.5 - 3 inches wide (and flattened). Fry a few at a time for a 3-4 minutes on each side, until they're golden brown. Set the finished ones aside. Between batches, add in more oil if necessary. Makes ~ 18-20.

Air fryer

  1. (this method uses no oil, only a bit of cooking spray!
  2. Add extra ¼ cup breadcrumbs (for a total of ½ cup)
  3. Add extra 1 tablespoon vegan honey mustard (for a total of 2 tablespoons)
  4. Roll the mixture into balls instead of patties, because you can fit more into the air fryer!
  5. Cook at 360 degrees for 15 minutes, each batch.
