Happy Chanukah: Potato,Spinach and Feta Latkes

Spinach & Feta Latkes


Let’s start off this Chanukah with a new look at our old friend the latke.

Regular latkes are made with grated potatoes and onions, which are deep fried in oil until they are crispy brown. The following recipe is fun year round, but makes a special treat for parties where potato latkes are in abundance.

Start by grating a few russet potatoes. Defrost a package of frozen spinach to mix with the grated potatoes. Place the mixture in a strainer and let sit for at least one hour. A dryer mixture makes for better frying, so the longer you let sit, the better.

Mix 3 eggs, ¾ cup bread crumbs or matzo meal, salt, pepper and ½ cup crumbled feta cheese together, and add to the potato and spinach mixture.

Fill a frying pan with oil about one inch deep and heat.

Shape the mixture into little pancakes and then drop them into the oil. When the edges are light brown flip the latkes very carefully and cook about three minutes on the other side.

Let your latkes cool a bit on paper towels to soak up the excess oil, and enjoy with a side of sour cream. Enjoy!
