Whether you like them baked or fried, with onions or without, non-traditional or classic, we have the recipe for you. 

The first is my all-time favorite spin on the classic: an adaption of Julia Child's famous potato "galette." I discovered this recipe in Child's 1989 classic, The Way to Cook.  The simple dish -- grated russet potatoes, salt, pepper, and nothing else, fried by the spoonful in clarified butter or olive oil -- struck me as a brilliant new concept: latke a la francaiseGet the recipe here.

On Rye's ready-to-go Oven-Roasted Root Vegetable Latke.

A new and innovative twist comes to us courtesy of hip DC Deli, On Rye with this oven-roasted, root vegetable version.  The rutabaga in On Rye’s latkes really makes the difference as it gives a kick to the latkes with its horseradish-y flavor. A lemon yogurt topping lends further zing. Best of all, you miss the fuss and calories of deep-frying by popping these latkes in the oven. Get recipe here.
