Everyone loves biting into a crispy potato latke. That first bite is sinfully delicious. However, by night number three we are bored of the standard combo of latkes and applesauce. Spice up the traditional latke with these easy, no fuss recipes.
Latke Sliders with BBQ Chicken and Pomegranate Coleslaw
It starts off with a potato latke. You add a layer of shredded BBQ chicken then top it off with a colorful serving of pomegranate coleslaw. The seeds add a pretty pop of color and fantastic tart crunch to the salad.

Spice up the original potato latke this holiday! Skewer bite-sized potato latkes together with a layer of creamy nacho sauce served on top.
Ingredients for Nacho Sauce:
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Waffle Latkes with Bite-Sized Crispy Chicken
These are a personal favorite of mine! I love the sweet salty combo of latkes with maple syrup.
Ingredients for Baked Chicken Bites:
1 lb. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of mayo
1 tsp. dijon mustard
2 cups corn flake crumbs
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
Cut chicken into small pieces.
Season corn flake crumbs with salt and pepper.
Combine mustard and mayo. Coat chicken with mayo mixture, then corn flake crumbs.
Place on lightly-greased baking sheet, spray with cooking oil and cook in oven at 350° for 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked.
While the chicken cooks, prepare potato latkes and cook up in batches using a non-dairy waffle maker.
Plate cooked waffle latkes with baked chicken bites and hold together with a toothpick.
Drizzle maple syrup on top or serve with western sauce (combine equal parts ketchup, mayo and BBQ sauce) or spicy mayo (mayo with sriracha sauce).
