Hanukkah will soon be upon us, and it's time to start thinking about planning a festive menu.
! The most traditional food to eat on Chanukah is Potato Latkes!
If you are looking for a really good latke that is baked, not fried- This is it!
Usually, the baked ones do not taste as good as fried- these do ! Just think, you can spare yourself the extra calories without giving up the taste!
A few years ago, I had a
One tray was fried, one tray was baked, and another was fried but a different recipe.
Guess what! In a blind taste test, hands down, everyone loved my baked latkes the best-
so I'm sharing the crowd's favorite recipe today.
I know we are supposed to fry on
I think these baked latkes are a healthier, less fattening, and just as delicious version-
Of course they are also gluten free. Enjoy

You may have seen Chanukah spelled many ways. This is because it is a Hebrew word that is translated into English and there are many acceptable English spellings including Chanukah and Hanukkah; I like Chanukah!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 20 minutes
6 large baking potatoes , peeled and grated
2 carrots, grated
1 cup of hand grated real parmesan ( don't use the powdery parmesan- it won't work)
5 scallions, chopped fine
Freshly cracked pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Line two large rimmed cookie sheets with parchment and spray with some oil.
Using a hand grater or machine, grate the carrots and potatoes and mix together in a large bowl. Wring out as much liquid as possible ( use a clean hand towel) .
Add eggs, scallions, parmesan, and freshly cracked pepper.
Drop a large tablespoon full onto the cookie sheet and flatten into a latke shape ( like a large cookie) Bake 15-20 minutes until beginning to brown and getting crispy. Serve immediately and top sour cream, Greek yogurt or homemade applesauce.
I haven't done this, but I have been told that if you are really in a hurry, you can buy a bag or two of shredded potatoes that are used for hash browns. Defrost them, wring them out and use them as your grated potato in a potato latke recipe.
Sometimes I really want to save on carbs and calories, so I make a vegetable ( without the starchy potato) latke. I like it because it's still crispy and crunchy . Vegetable latkes
