It’s that time of year when deep frying is practically a mitzvah! So even if you usually avoid deep-fried foods, I say go with the flow and embrace the customs of the holiday.  You’ve got eight guilt-free nights to savor these sizzling delights—it would almost be a sin not to.

This year try something new and different for your Chanukah party or even just one of your eight nights at home with the family. Sure we are big latke fans over here, have you browsed our collection of over 90 Latkes right here on the site? Once you are done with all those come back here and try something new.

SWEET POTATO LATKES WITH BRIE & BABY ARUGULA

Sweet Potato Latkes with Brie and Baby Arugula

I recently enjoyed the most amazing Blue Cheese and Arugula Pizza at a restaurant in Brooklyn. Couldn’t stop dreaming about it—and this superb latke is the inspired result. Use blue cheese (for a tangy, bold, sweet and sour flavor) or brie (for a milder, creamy effect) and finish it off with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and freshly ground black pepper.

JALAPENO POPPERS AND WASABI DIPPING SAUCE

Most people have only ever had these at a bar or restaurant, often they come from the freezer. Some people shy away completely for fear that they will be too spicy. If you give them a shot, even the spice averse will find that homemade Jalapeño poppers are worth a fry (try).
