Stuffed Latkes

A latke with a surprise in the middle is a great way to update the classic Chanukah dish. Be creative and stuff latkes with anything you have on hand. Maybe even use it as a way to get your kids to eat their veggies by adding peas, broccoli, tomatoes, zucchini, or spinach.

Start with my favorite Basic Latke Recipe.

Then choose your filling:

Salmon + Green Goddess Dressing
The crispy potato latke, with the smooth fresh taste of salmon makes for a great combination. Green goddess dressing, a
mixture of herbs and sour cream, adds color and flavor to this impressive latke.

Pulled Brisket + BBQ Sauce
This combination tastes similar to a pulled beef sandwich; the ultimate latke for any meat and potato lover.

Mushroom + Sour Cream
The earthiness of the potatoes and mushrooms make for a rustic and classic flavor combination. The sour cream adds richness to the latke.

Cheese + Marinara Sauce
Our version of mozzarella sticks…latke style. A gooey, cheesy center with a hint of basil surrounded by crispy potatoes is
a spectacular Chanukah treat.

Apples + Sour Cream with a Cinnamon Topping
Inspired by the classic latke with apple sauce on the side, this latke takes on the flavors of an apple fritter.

  1. I’ll take the cheese and marinara sauce latkes, please. Sounds absolutely delish!

  2. They are, and they are surprisingly easy :)

  3. Yum! Love the pulled brisket idea! I’ve made Reuben Latkes before with sauerkraut and corned beef. They were so good! http://www.kitchen-tested.com/2011/12/13/stuffed-reuben-latkes/
