And also, they are completely clueless. After lighting the menorah and gobbling the gelt, Grandpa Latke tells everyone the Hanukkah story, complete with mighty Mega Bees who use a giant dreidel to fight against the evil alien potatoes from Planet Chhh. It’s up to the Latke family dog to set the record straight. (To start with, they were Maccabees, not Mega Bees…) But he’ll have to get the rest of the Latkes to listen to him first!

Potato Latke recipe:

  • 2 C potatoes – shredded/dried
  • 1 T Onion    grated
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 T flour
  • olive of oil to fry in.

Make sure potatoes are dry mix in the other ingredients. Heat a skillet with olive oil and drop spoonful of mixtures into the skillet. Cook until golden brown and serve hot with sour cream.
