For many of us, it’s not Chanukah without latkes. And while you may be partial to the traditional style latke your grandmother has perfected over the years, it may be time to mix it up. From swapping potatoes for sweet potatoes to incorporating feta and vegetables, there’s no limit to the latke possibilities this Chanukah. And you’ll find all of the necessary ingredients at Livonia Glatt Market.

SWEET POTATO LATKES WITH GREEK YOGURT AND SMOKED SALMON
For a healthy spin on a classic kosher treat, try making the Sweet Potato Latkes with Greek Yogurt and Smoked Salmon from Cooking for Keeps. While the salmon may have you craving a bagel, we’re sure the combination of the sweet potato and greek yogurt will change your perception of salmon. This recipe even calls for the latkes to be bite-sized, making them the perfect appetizer for your Chanukah gathering.
Yes, you read that right. Latke waffles. Whether enjoying them for breakfast or breakfast-for-dinner, you’ll wonder why you haven’t loaded up the waffle iron with delicious potatoes before. This unique twist on a Chanukah classic from Smitten Kitchen started with a traditional latke recipe and added an extra egg and more flour to make it more battery for the waffle iron.
