Dreidel Latkes and Chanukah Fun
Sometimes you just don’t want to work all that hard. Even making Hash Brown Potato Latkes seems like just too much after a hectic day. So, what’s a person to do when they still want to make fun latkes but opening a boxed mix of potato latkes seems like the best solution?? The answer can be found in Dreidel Latkes!!!
What exactly are Dreidel Latkes
A few months ago, I was given a reprieve and spent a leisurely afternoon in my favorite place: Homegoods. I’m normally restricted from shopping there due to the lack of self restraint I exhibit when entering the store.
This time, I found the most adorable little Dash Dreidel Waffle Maker for only $9.99. I simply had to buy it. I put it on our “holiday” shelf in the basement, where it awaited the moment it would be called into action.
I was initially going to make Dreidel Pancake Waffles
My first plan had been to make fun Chanukah pancake/waffles for the kids. I also have a Dash LLama waffle/pancake maker and it’s loads of fun.
Then I had an epiphany.
What if I make latkes instead of breakfast waffle/pancakes.
The Dreidel Latkes had to be crazy simple to make
The batter had to be super smooth to emulate pancake mix… Latke Mix was the solution.
Theoretically, you could make latke mix from seriously ground potatoes and onions, but this is supposed to be easy.
I pulled down my (out of date) Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix from my pantry shelf, followed the instructions and let the batter sit until it was thick.
The Dreidel Latke Maker is super fun to use (but slow)
I preheated the Dreidel maker while the mix was setting. Keeping with the whole “frying on Chanukah” concept, I sprayed a healthy dose of non-aerosol avocado oil spray on the mold, then put a dollop of latke mix next, then closed the Dreidel Waffle Latke Iron and waited.
Note: Be prepared to be doing other things while making these. There is a lot of cooking time.
The Dreidel Latke Pancake/Waffle maker only makes one at a time. It takes 6-10 minutes for each latke to properly brown. One box of lake mix makes around 10 latkes.
You do the math.
But… Dreidel Latkes are SO MUCH FUN
It’s true. They are.
Here’s the recipe for Dreidel Latkes
Feel free to make these more complicated by using “from scratch” ingredients. But…this isn’t meant to be that recipe 😆

Dreidel Latkes are super fun and easy to make. Using a little Dash Dreidel Pancake/Waffle maker and a store bought boxed Potato Pancake mix, there were super fun latkes for everyone!
- 1 box store bought latke mix
- Extra ingredients required to prepare store bought latke mix
- Non-aerosol avocado oil spray
- Apple sauce for serving
- Prepare latke mix according to package directions. Let the mixed mix rest for 10 minutes.
- Plug the Dreidel pancake/waffle iron in to preheat.
- Spray the Dreidel iron generously with avocado spray.
- Place a large, heaping spoonful of latke mix onto the Dreidel iron. Close the lid.
- Cook until the Dreidel Latke is golden brown, 6-10 minutes.
- Repeat with remaining latke batter.
- Serve with apple sauce.
This is a long process. I strongly recommend doing something else in the kitchen while preparing these super fun latkes.
- Serving Size: 1 latke
