Crisp Hanukkah pancakes, from classic potato to inspired riffs.
Article Image

No Hanukkah is complete without latkes. But those crisp potato pancakes really lend themselves to experimentation, whether you play with size (giant or mini), stuff them, add extra veggies (beets, carrots, sunchokes, zucchini) or give your latkes an ethnic twist (Mexican, Greek). Consider yourself a latke traditionalist? Our classic latkes are ones you’ll add to your repertoire, but there are a few twists here we bet you’ll want to try, too.
