Latkes Sandwich

It's the last Sandwich Wednesday, check back next week for the beginning of Soup Wednesday. I think out of all our Wednesday series, soup might be our favorite (if not, it's a close second to grilling). There are so many recipes for soup and in Ohio soup is something delicious to help get you through the cold.

Happy Hanukkah!! I chose to put together this sandwich as a nod to the Jewish holiday. The crunchy lakes paired perfectly with the cream cheese and chives. It's a little twist on the classic.

The latkes recipe is adapted from Food Network

-2 pounds russet potatoes
-3 tablespoons flour
-1 large egg, lightly beaten
-1/4 teaspoon baking powder
-2 teaspoons kosher salt
-Vegetable oil, for frying
-Cream cheese
-Chives, minced
Grate the potato. 
The potato will be watery, drain if possible to release the extra moisture.

Mix in the flour, baking power, salt and egg.
Fry 1/4 of a cup of potato mixture at a time.
Make sure to press down to flatten.
Drain on a paper towel. 
Smear the inside with cream cheese and top with chives.
Top with another latke and enjoy.

Crispy and delicious. 
This latkes recipe was delicious. The latkes were perfectly seasoned with salt and fried to a nice crisp texture. The cream cheese added a coolness to the latkes and the chives added a slight oniony bite. This is a pairing I will be using again, both in sandwich form and open faced.
