It’s time to be adventurous. I’m serving up eight latke recipes for each night of Chanukah!

Night #1 – Cheddar and Potato Latkes 

Cheddar and Potato Latkes with Spiced Applesauce

Mashing the potatoes first gives these savory latkes an amazing fluffy texture. The addition of cheddar cheese goes beautifully with the spiced applesauce for a latke that will surely be one of your new favorites.

Night #2 – Potato and Parsnip Latkes 

Potato and Parsnip Latkes

Traditional potato latkes get an extra hint of earthiness with the addition of parsnips and thyme. If you have a food processor, try using the shredding attachment to cut down on prep time.

Night #3 – Zucchini Latkes

This healthier latke doesn’t use any potato at all but instead uses tasty vegetables and a great mix of Cajun spices.

Night #4 – Carrot and Apple Latkes

Carrots, apples and ginger are combined in this unique take on a latke for a slightly sweet twist.

Night #5 – South of the Border Latkes with Black Bean Topping 

South of the Border Latkes with Black Bean Topping

Spicy, hearty, and cheesy, these latkes are absolutely delicious packed with protein, carbs and veggies – it’s like a meal in one.

Night #6 – Steakhouse Latkes 

Steakhouse Latkes

Don’t worry this recipe is pareve but the name is inspired by the spinach and potato style sides commonly offered in steakhouses alongside, well, a steak!

Night #7 – Samosa Latkes 

Samosa Latkes

Use russet potatoes, they are the best for baking! The addition of curry powder, peas and the chutney is what gives this latke an Indian flavor.

Night #8 – Baked Sweet Potato Latkes with Gingered Sour Cream 

Baked Sweet Potato Latkes and Gingered Sour Cream

To satisfy any sweet tooth, these delicious latkes are baked, not fried, so they’re a lot healthier. Paired with an easy to make gingered sour cream, they are a delicious treat! (you can always just fry them up if you must!)

And, for the people in your life who are purists (Zaydie comes to mind), here are a couple of traditional potato latke recipes, including my Zaydie’s tried and true classic best ever potato latke recipe: Latkes, Crispy Potato Latkes, Mashed Potato Pancakes.
