25 Bougie Latkes That Will Light Up Your Hanukkah This Year (Photos)

Hanukkah is finally upon us, so you know what that means.

It's time to light the menorah and chow down on all sorts of traditional treats.

Everyone knows latkes, crispy-fried pancakes, are a staple snack during this holiday celebration.

But if you've been sticking to plain-old potato latkes, you've been missing out on all sorts of insanely delicious variations of this festive food.

That's right. You can really take your latkes to the next level by swapping out those boring potatoes for some different shredded veggies or turning your pancakes into a drool-worthy dessert by using fruit as your base.

Plus, you can upgrade your latkes by ditching the simple sour cream and opting for a variety of creative sauce and tasty toppings.

If you're in need of a little latke inspiration, you'll be glad to know we found a bunch of bougie latke recipes that are so damn good, you'll want to eat them for way more than just eight nights.

Take a look at the pictures below to see some seriously impressive latkes you need to eat this Hanukkah.
