Lots of Latkes

While there are a number of traditional foods for Chanukah, the latke (pancake fried in oil) has undoubtedly claimed first place in American celebrations of the holiday. Sick of the same old, same old? Try some of these variations.

Potato Latkes

Hybrid Latkes bring together several different kinds of potatos for a tastier, more interesting pancake.

Sweet Potato Latkes balance the oily goodness with beta carotene.

Cauliflower Latkes really up the ante as a healthy alternative.

Corn Latkes not only taste great, they require no grating!

And if you find yourself asking but what do I serve WITH the latkes, we've got that covered too.
