Broccoli Cheddar Latkes


Potato latkes are as exciting as vanilla ice cream. I’m sure there are the purists who believe it’s best to stick with tradition, but I like to mix things up in the kitchen. This year, I’m giving the latke a serious makeover, starting with this Broccoli Cheddar Latkes recipe.
