All-Star Latke Recipes
Whip up potato, apple and even Brussels sprout varieties.
Hanukkah will be here before you know it, which means there's no better time to brush up on your latke-making skills — and perhaps even find a new recipe to share with friends and family this year. Go the classic route with crispy potato latkes, or get a little adventurous with Brussels sprouts. (We have a feeling Molly Yeh's recipe will make everyone fall in love with the little green gems!) No matter whether you like them savory or sweet, these latkes will shine at your Hanukkah celebration.
Food Network Kitchen's potato latkes are super crispy on the outside but soft and moist on the inside. Use shredded potatoes for a traditional look, and add a little bit of onion for that hint of sweetness.
Trade in the potatoes for Brussels sprouts and never look back. Molly stirs shredded Brussels sprouts together with egg whites, seasonings and chickpea flour, then fries up her latkes in a thin layer of oil. When they're perfectly browned on each side, they're ready to serve with her balsamic-Dijon sour cream.
Who said latkes couldn't be healthy? Use your oven and you'll have crispy latkes with a whole lot less fat and fewer calories. No-sugar-added applesauce and reduced-fat sour cream are delicious accompaniments.
Even if you have a favorite family recipe for latkes that you would never dream of replacing, do your family a favor and make Molly's caramelized onion sour cream. Her panko-filled latkes are irresistibly crispy, yes, but the sour cream really sets them apart from the rest, and it's 100% worth the extra effort.
Cinnamon-spiced apple latkes are a sweet addition to any Hanukkah celebration. Top with maple syrup just before serving and watch them disappear. One fan said they're even great for breakfast!
Combine russets and sweet potatoes for a fun twist that's savory yet ... sweet! Just a few tablespoons of chives give the latkes a subtle onion flavor that pairs as well with a side of applesauce as it does horseradish.
