The Best 8 Latke Recipes for Chanukah

It all started about ten years ago.  I was a newlywed and still learning my way around the kitchen.  Our friend Seth invited us to his annual Chanukah party and added that this year there would be a latke making contest. I couldn’t wait to enter!  Up against some fierce competition including my husband (who hasn’t made a latke since) my thin, crispy potato latkes won over the judges and I was crowned champion.  Some people went sweet, while others went savory. Most tried for a classic potato, but a few added vegetables, cheeses and other fillings. Sometimes you can’t beat tradition.  But I still like getting creative. When I first met Jamie a little  over a year ago, I found she had at least as many latke recipes as I did.  I knew we would get along well.  So here are 8 amazing latke recipes to choose from, but don’t stop there, we have 54 to choose from and are hoping you will add yours, too.

Potato and Parsnip Latkes

Cauliflower Carrot Latkes

Samosa Latkes


Cheddar and Potato Latkes with Spiced Applesauce

Sweet Potato Latkes

Garlicky Potato Latkes

These two are new favorites that were finalists in last year’s latke recipe contest.
