Every family has its own (ahem, best) version of these savory potato pancakes
. We’re offering you a classic formula, though not everyone drains the potato mixture before frying—we find this prevents the latkes from absorbing too much oil and allows them to crisp into golden disks. Top them with apple chutney
, a spicy, crunchy twist to traditional applesauce.
Mix and match: smoked salmon
with horseradish cream and lemony egg salad
are delicious on both latke options
