Fear of latkes

eeee | | Dec 8, 2009 10:42 AM

In a moment of bravado I agreed to host a Hanukah party for my family and now the prospect of making potato pancakes terrifies me. the last (and only) time I attempted this feat I burned both hands and nearly burnt down my kitchen. all for a relatively meager output of latkes.

I am thinking of ordering pre-made latkes and them heating them for company in duck fat. is this a good idea? how far in advance can I cook (or I guess recook) the pancakes? advice welcome. also, supereasy latkes recipes welcome in case I decide to reattempt making them from scratch.
