Happy Chanukah all! Whether you observe it or not, you’ve got to admit that a holiday that celebrates with fried food is appealing. My favorite Chanukah foods are fried pancakes called latkes.
I like my latkes thin and crispy – and up until now, big enough to sink a fork into. But it turns out that latkes are also perfect finger food. Shifting from the “big as my fist” to “silver dollar latkes” – or as my husband calls them “silver shekel latkes,” transformed latkes from peasant food to elegant morsels.
These bite-sized fried potato pancakes go down easy. Topped with just a drop of sour cream, cranberry sauce, applesauce, or anything else you fancy, they are perfect party appetizers or snack food.
