Broccoli Cheese Latkes


The groundhog had attacked my broccoli, ate all the best parts, but left some leaves. So I left the plants in the garden.  Two months later, I have broccoli!

These latkes are delicious! I can’t wait to make them again for Hanukah. Tonight we had them with eggs – one of my favorite ways to eat latkes. The bread on the side is a spinach-ricotta stuffed challah, but that would be a story for another day.
