How to Make Latkes
Potato latkes are traditional for Hanukkah and are the perfect comfort food for any other time of the year.
Yesterday I shared an updated version of my traditional Potato Pancake recipe, and today I’m sharing a crispier potato latke. Latkes are the perfect comfort food and are a traditional food served at Hanukkah. They are easy to make with no special skills required. That makes them not only great for the holiday season but also for any weeknight. They take just a few simple ingredients that you probably have in your pantry so they also work great anytime.
The best part about potato latkes is that they’re versatile and can be seasoned however you prefer. You can stick with the usual onion, salt and pepper or you can season them with your favorite fresh herbs. Depending on what seasonings you use, you’ll want to top them with applesauce or sour cream. Both are beloved traditional latkes toppings so go crazy and try both.
