Chanukah, Day 6: Latkes

latkesOk, more food!  But come on…holidays are about the eating, right?!? Potato latkes are another common food eaten during Chanukah, and what a surprise….a fried one!

To add something different I thought I would give you the receipe on how to make them….





What you’ll need:

  • 2 peeled potatoes
  • 1 peeled onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • black pepper
  • sour cream


1. Grate potatoes and onions into a medium-sized mixing bowl.

2. In another bowl add the eggs, milk, butter and blend.

3. Then add the flour, salt, and pepper and mix.

4. Drop spoon-sized amounts on the skillet.

5. Spread out to make a pancake-type shape.

6. Flip over until both sides are nice and golden-brown.

7. Serve with sour cream.
