🥔 🧅 Reuben Latkes 🧅 🥔
Potato Latkes, Corned Beef
Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut with Caraway, Russian Dressing
Happy Hanukkah! 🕎
As far as symbolic foods go, potatoes fried in oil are pretty much everyone’s favorite. A jug of olive oil, which held enough oil to last for one day, burned for eight when the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated. So… we eat foods fried in olive oil to commemorate that ancient miracle. 🌟
This year my latkes are savory and loaded! First, I season them from the inside out, by adding everything-bagel-seasoning, sea salt & fresh ground pepper, and plenty chopped chives to the potato batter. The bagel seasoning contains poppy seeds, black & white sesame seeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, and flaked sea salt. No shortage of flavor there.
Then I’m topping those beautiful fried potato latkes with classic Reuben Sandwich ingredients – Swiss Cheese, Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, and Russian Dressing. The caraway seeds in the sauerkraut mimic the distinct flavor in our favorite Jewish rye bread.
Of course, we all love ❤️ plain applesauce and sour cream as traditional accompaniments but for 2023, I’m treating my guests to a flavor extravaganza, and serving Reuben-Style Latkes!
