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.



Potato Latkes (recipe below)
Shredded chicken (Cook up chicken from scratch, use leftovers or store-bought rotisserie!)
BBQ sauce Pomegranate Coleslaw (recipe below)



Place cooked potato latkes on a serving platter.
Combine chicken and BBQ sauce.
Top latkes with BBQ chicken and coleslaw.


Recipe for Potato Latkes:

20 oz. shredded hash browns, about 3½ cups (frozen works great!)
2 eggs
2 tbsp flour (add more if batter doesn’t hold together)
2 scallions chopped up


Recipe for Pomegranate Coleslaw:

Coleslaw Mix
2 tbsp mayo
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp sugar
¼ cup Pomegranate seeds



Latkes with Creamy Nacho Sauce (Dairy)

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

Melt butter, then add flour and whisk together until well combined and a paste forms.

Add milk and whisk over a medium flame until sauce thickens. Add shredded cheese and continue whisking until cheese melts and sauce is smooth.


Recipe for Salsa:

4 tomatoes
1 bunch of cilantro
1 red onion
Juice of 1 lime


Pulse together in a processor until smooth. Optional: Add 2 jalapeno peppers without seeds for spice.

To serve: Plate latke skewers over sliced avocado and salsa with nacho sauce on top.



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).
