They are sooo yummy and usually fried/loaded with oil and fat and everything you probably don't really want to eat if you are trying maintain your weight over the holidays!
Enter my equally-as-delicious, slightly crispy, oven-baked, oil-free latkes that are only 63 calories a pop!
Seriously guys, that is unheard of in the latke world.
For those who aren't familiar with latkes, they are a typical Jewish dish that kind of taste like hashbrowns.
They are SO good.
Happy Hannukah, friends!!
