Latkes are one of the most traditional foods that I refuse to play around with! You won’t see me making cauliflower latkes or carrot muffin latkes. Latkes need to be potatoes!
But I will have loads of fun with all sorts of delicious toppings. I mean, who decided that latkes only go with applesauce? Here’s 6 creative combos I came up with to top my latkes the fun way!

Add the onion to a food processor fitted with the S-blade. Add the matzo meal, eggs, salt and pepper and pulse until well mixed.
Leave in the food processor and now switch the S-blade for the grater piece. Grate the potatoes into the food processor.
Remove the batter from the food processor and place in a bowl. Squeeze out any excess liquid. The dryer the batter, the crispier the latke will be!
Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan and add about two inches of oil. Wait until it’s hot, about five to seven minutes. I always test it by dropping in a tiny bit of potato. If it starts sizzling right away, then you know it’s ready. With your hands, form parties. I like to squeeze the patties in my hand to get rid of any extra liquid. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Serve warm, on a board, with your chosen toppings.
These latkes were very easy to make and went down a treat. As a beginner at making latkes, I was very impressed. I will definitely be making them again.
