With Hanukah coming, I have become fixated on the idea of just having one latke. The fried potato goodness evokes the holiday season and my mom for me, and it'd be nice to have that nostalgic moment - with just one latke.
I have never made fried latke's before, but in general I'm not very confident with frying food in that amount of oil (let alone doing it for just one). And I'm not really interested in baked or healthier routes - because it's not like I want a whole plate or anything. Also, I live in Jerusalem where prepared food counters will sell them - but anything fried that's been pre-made and allowed to go cold....uch.
What are other holiday foods that CHers love but really just want to have that taste, without commiting to the entire preparation.
