5 Favorite Latke Recipes Hanukkah, the eight-day festival of lights, is often celebrated by eating foods deep-fried in oil, an homage to the long-lasting oil in the holiday's story. While jelly doughnuts are a hit throughout Israel, as we explored on What's Cookin' last year, latkes are a worldwide tradition come Hanukkah season.

Latkes, similar in some ways to American home-fries, are made of shredded potato and onion which are dusted with egg and flour and fried in oil until crisp. Often served with applesauce, these are also great with ketchup, sour cream or a bit of brisket gravy.

We love the classic potato pancake as is, but there are some impressive alternatives for the recipe as well. Read on for our five favorite latke recipes for this Hanukkah season.
