In honor of Hanukkah I made Potato Latkes for dinner.  My mom cooked these when I was growing up, but her version was fried and unfortunately I spent the weekend eating brie and bon bons so I was extremely excited to find a recipe online for a slightly more healthy version of this childhood favorite.   These baked latkes are absolutely delicious!  They come out of the oven crispy and firm and pair perfectly with apple sauce and sour cream.  Finally, I sprinkled a few freshly chopped green onions over the top for a festive touch.

I love the “baked” versions of your latkes. I kinda meshed two of the recipes- the sweet potato and russet potato latke version and I think it is the best of both worlds- try it! yumm!
