Potatoes
This family recipe was given to me by my boyfriend's mother who received it from a book club friend who, in turn, got it from her friend's longtime family recipe. It came with little notes about personal preferences, and I'm sure it's changed along the way, but I figured it had to be good if it kept getting passed on — and it is. Community recipes like this one are the ones that we treasure here at The Daily Meal, and we're pretty sure you will, too. Click here to see Happy Hanukkah: For the Love of Latkes!

Potato Latkes
My kitchen was a disaster. Potato bits coated the floor, forest-green sprinkles of dill and drops of oil were everywhere and a handful of bloody potatoes sat in the corner — It was my first time making latkes (and I cut my finger).  After reading dozens of recipes, I decided to experiment on my own (hence the kitchen disaster). I left out flour because I wanted to make it gluten-free, and then cooked batches of latkes in three different types of pans, varying amounts of oil, heat, and even dipping the potato mixture in beaten eggs before frying (delicious, but it looked kind of like an omelette). Even though my first batch ended up as hash browns, I eventually realized that a lot of oil, moderate heat and patience were key for good latkes. (But I'd still love any advice from experienced latke makers on how to improve.)

Potato latkes
The key to this recipe is frying the potatoes as soon as your ingredients are combined. You don't want the grated potatoes to sit around or they will turn brown fast. Using a food processor to grate your ingredients will make this a lot easier and make sure you work swiftly. If your mixture is too wet, add more breadcrumbs.For more classic Hanukkah dishes, click here.

Potato
There are many different ways to make latkes, but after many attempts, this recipe seems to be the best. We played around with the eggs, oil type, grating/puréeing, adding matzah meal, and the potato-drying technique used. Our conclusion? To caramelize the onions in chicken fat, go half and half with the potatoes in the grater and food processor, dry the hell out of the potatoes (first through a strainer and then by utilizing the “jelly roll towel” technique), and finally, to fry the pancakes in a combination of chicken fat and peanut oil. Just a few minor tweaks that can take your pancakes to the next level.  Click here to see Happy Hanukkah: For the Love of Latkes!

  After researching the art of making latkes, The Daily Meal Cook Editor felt that everyone had their own opinion on what flour and oil to use for the perfect latke, and Roger Mummert uses matzoh meal and safflower oil in his recipe. For the perfect latkes, make sure the oil is extra hot and that you don't overcrowd the pan.  — The Daily Meal Cook Editors

Broccoli Cheddar Latkes
Potato latkes are as exciting as vanilla ice cream. I’m sure there are the purists who believe it’s best to stick with tradition, but I like to mix things up in the kitchen. This year, I’m giving the latke a serious makeover, starting with this recipe for broccoli Cheddar latkes!
