These are a nice change from regular pancakes. They make a great dinner meal when served with bratwurst sausage. I spread mine with cranberry sauce and top with maple syrup.

Latkes (potato pancakes) are a must have at Hanukkah, but really are wonderful any time of year! This is my mother's recipe, which is honestly the best latke I've had. I usually end up having to make a second batch because they disappear so quickly. I've tried other recipes and always return to these. Lovely topped with sour cream or applesauce.

This is my mother's latke recipe which has been a smashing hit at dozens of Chanukah parties. The secret is in the potatoes, which are crushed rather than grated, resulting in a light, crispy latke.

Easy Air Fryer Latkes

These crispy latkes are made with only 4 ingredients and air-fried in less than 15 minutes. I made these in an air fryer oven but can be made in batches in a regular air fryer. Cook time may have to be adjusted.
