Latkes, a traditional food served at Hanukkah, are skillet potato pancakes that are perfectly crunchy on the outside with a savory flavor that you won't be able to resist. All you need is a hot pan and a little bit of oil to get these fritters crispy and cooked, whether you're serving them immediately, or re-heating when it comes time for your Hanukkah celebrations. Serve alongside sour cream or unsweetened applesauce to balance the warm heat with something smooth and sweet. Make these ahead of time, and throw them in the freezer until it's time to enjoy them. From basic potato to curried carrot, and root vegetable, we've got all your latke needs covered.
Crispy, chewy, and lusciously oily, latkes are a traditional Hanukkah food that is hard for anyone, no matter their religion or tradition, to resist.
