Keep latkes crisp overnight?

Emily Cotlier | Dec 6, 2001 06:08 PM

I want to bring latkes into work on the 9th. However, I do not want to wake up at 5 AM and make latkes (what are latkes? crispy potato-shred-and-onion pancakes)- I'd rather make them the night before, then bring them in.

Refrigerating latkes makes them soggy - no less delicious to me, but that's not the quintessential latke experience.

I have heard that you can leave the latkes out on a counter/in the stove, wrapped in foil, overnight, and nobody will die of food poisoning after you reheat them the next day, and that they will be, if not as crisp as fresh ones, reasonably unsoggy. Is this so? Does anyone else have crisp-latkes-next-day recommendations?
