For Hanukkah my grandmother always made delicious, lacy potato pancakes with lots of chopped onion, also called "latkes".
We loved them with applesauce or sour cream, same as her blintzes. They were delicious.
I serve mine with smoked salmon, creme fraiche and dill, a bit fancier than my grandmother's version from Queens, NY.
Here is Ina's recipe for latkes, which are the best.
You can add some scallions and carrots to the mixture, but then they are not really potato pancakes anymore, but vegetables pancakes!
Pile on some lox or good quality Scottish smoked salmon, light the menorah and open your presents for 8 nights.
Sounds good to me!
Have a Happy Hanukkah!
