Skinny Mini Potato Pancakes Appetizer (Latkes)


Skinny Mini Potato Pancakes Appetizer (Latkes)
Fried potato pancakes are hands down the holiday favorite. They’re called latkes. I know you’ll love these skinny, baked ones. Best of all, baking them will save about 5 grams of fat per serving. In addition, you’ll save time by not standing over the stove. Each serving, 4 mini pancakes, has 64 calories and 1 gram of fat. These are so good you’ll want to make them several times a year.  These bite-size morsels are fun to serve as hors d’oeuvres. Just place them on a serving plate with a small dish of reduced-fat or fat-free sour cream and applesauce.  Let everybody dress their own pancake.
