The age old question..dairy or meat for Hanukkah?

What do you prepare to eat with your latkes?

  1. Since making cheddar apple latkes last year, I can't imagine ever serving meat again. They were fantastic.

        Not much to say but shred some hearty apples (fuji/gala) and a medium cheddar and mix in with the potato/onion/egg/etc. mixture you'd normally use. I'd say probably 20-25g of each would be a good amount per latke. Adjust the potatoes down by about the equivalent.

      1. Mostly dairy. One or two meat nights, no latkes at those.

          the meat nights can finish with sufganiyot. Although my children like the latkes almost every night. Some some nights will have Parve latkes

            Do you make your sufganiyot from scratch? If so, can you give a recipe or link?

          2. I've heard the story as well but I believe she went a slightly different route and decapitated him.

            Either way, I'd go dairy most nights. As much as I like tofu cream cheese, tofu sour cream has never even been passable in my experience. Maybe different cheese-centered dishes: homemade mac n cheese, cheese and veggie quiche, baked brie...
