Latkes, or crisp onion-scented potato pancakes, are a traditional Hanukkah dish. Go to any Hanukkah party and you’ll find an apron-clad Jewish mother or grandmother standing at the stove frying and doling them out – a tradition I loved and cherished until I became the poor mother who had to make them. Cooking short-order style, hot oil splattering all over the kitchen, children running underfoot – no thank you! Enter these oven-fried baked latkes. They’re no healthier, mind you, but just as good, half the mess since they're baked in the oven, and so much easier.
