I discovered latkes last year and I’m hooked. So when Ralph’s had a heavy bag of potatoes on sale for $1.99 last week, I grabbed it and didn’t look back. It was a starch-filled week: soup, gnocchi, French fries, and these cute, crunchy latkes.
I used the same yogurt-brown-butter-pine nut mixture as last time (minus the sage) and it made for a perfectly light meal. Latkes might be more traditional in December, months and months from now, when the weather is a bit colder, but don’t wait until the end of the year to make these. They’re really perfect any time.
And I have to apologize. I don’t know what I did with this recipe. It happens, sometimes, with all the recipes I pull out of magazines and e-mail to myself that I can’t remember where I found it. So I’ve included a few places you can find your new favorite latke recipe:
Gourmet’s Potato Latkes
Food Network’s Zucchini Latkes
Saveur’s Perfect Every Time Latkes
Giada’s Crispy Zucchini and Potato Pancakes
