Whether you like your latkes topped with fresh applesauce or sour cream, there’s one thing we can all agree on this Hanukkah: no one makes latkes quite like Bubbe’s batch. The smell of freshly fried potato latkes is one of the surefire signs that the festival of lights is upon us. But, if the latke frying tradition is being passed on to you this year, you just might have Bubbe’s standards of potato fryin’ to live up to.
Don’t worry. We’re here to help. From Golden Potato-Parsnip Latkes to Simple Potato Latkes, we’ve got more ways to make a potato pancake than there are days of Hanukkah to serve ‘em. You can even try our Sweet Potato Latkes this year for a crisp latke recipe with a Southern twist. No matter how many layers of latkes you place on the plate or which recipe you decide to fry, each one of these latke recipes is sure to be gobbled up quicker than then candles burn out.
