Behold: The Totally Crazy and Completely Awesome Latke Burger

Your bubby was right: Crispy, golden latkes need nothing more than a dab of applesauce or sour cream for you to get in the holiday spirit. But if you can munch on latkes for eight nights straight without batting an eye, perhaps there’s room for a new rendition.

Enter: the Latke Burger. Just in time for Hanukkah, Food Network Kitchen takes the oil tradition even further, uniting two Jewish deli staples into one stacked mash-up of miraculous proportions. By sandwiching a fried corned beef patty between two freshly fried potato pancakes, you can celebrate the miracle of oil in all of its crunchy and savory splendor.

Like you’d take your go-to burger with mustard and ketchup, top it with applesauce and a little horseradish mustard. Finish it off with some home-fried sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) and you’ve got yourself a holiday.

Watch how Food Network Kitchen makes the Latke Burger below.
