The Double Down Latke Sandwich Vs. “The Hanukkah Meat Sandwich”

I gotta hand it to The Jewish Journal for their tasty looking “Double Down Latke Sanwich,” but as a proud carnivore, I need something I can sink my teeth into a little bit more.  So, may I introduce the famous “Levitz Hanukkah Meat Sandwich” made by my family around Hanukkah. Somewhat similar, but not really…

  • Preheat oven to 250°F.  You’re gonna need this to store the latkes in.
  • You could peel potatoes and coarsely grate, directly into a large bowl of cold water.  Or you can just buy them shredded.  Your call.
  • If you choose the long way, soak potatoes for a few minutes
  • Spread grated potatoes, chopped garlic and onions on a kitchen towel, roll up and wring out as much liquid as possible.
  • Transfer potato mixture to a bowl and stir in egg and salt.  Add a pinch of matzo meal and a dash of pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet. Add enough oil to cover the bottom plus a bit more. Get the oil hot but don’t burn it. Spoon in the potato mixture into skillet, spreading with the back of the spoon into 3 or 4-inch rounds.
  • Reduce heat to moderate and cook until undersides are very well browned, about 5 minutes. Turn latkes over and cook until undersides are crispy.
  • Transfer to paper towels to drain and season with sea salt.  Keep the latkes warm in the oven.
  • Next you get a bunch of brisket, you braise the brisket, and you pour a bunch of BBQ sauce all over it, you put it in between two of the latkes, and BAM!  You’ve got yourself a Levitz Jewish Hanukkah Sandwich.
  • Go jog for about ten miles and drink a lot of red wine, because your cholesterol just went up a whole lot.

  • Good post. I learn something more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It is going to all the time be stimulating to learn content from different writers and practice just a little one thing from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

  • Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
