This traditional Jewish egg bread is quite versatile — it makes for fluffy French toast, tender bread pudding, or a variety of outstanding sandwiches. Challah's gorgeous golden hue is attributed to a generous egg wash before baking.
A classic Hanukkah dish, these warm, crisp potato pancakes (called latkes) also make a comforting winter snack. Customize your potato pancakes with your favorite flavors, such as fresh thyme, sage, sweet paprika, or ground cumin. Or substitute 1 cup grated potato with 1 cup vegetable or fruit — sweet potato, parsnip, carrot, apple, or pear.
