Potato Latke Batter

Author: Canadian Living

While potatoes are the traditional ingredient in latkes, you can add variety and other flavours. For instance, replace two of the potatoes with 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded butternut squash, carrots and/or zucchini. Another version includes herbs: add 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh rosemary, thyme or chives.
