Ingredients

  • Main

Potato latkes are a classic Jewish dish, most often enjoyed during Hanukkah but can be eaten any time of the year! They are a delicious side dish to any main course, and are similar to hash browns or rosti. The tradition of eating fried foods during Hanukkah commemorates the miracle after the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, when only a small amount of oil lasted for eight days. For this recipe, Masterbuilt Ambassador, Max Weinstein used the Gravity Series 800 Grill and Smoker.
