Butternut squash chili pepper latkes
These gluten-free latkes are so crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are so flavorful that you won’t need any toppings! You can make them hours in advance and just warm them up right before serving! Tips for successful latkes: Drain as well as you can. Don’t make too many at a time and don’t move them or touch them in between. Use a spatula and a wooden spoon to flip the latke. If your oil gets dirty and bubbly, pour it out and pat the pan dry with a towel and use fresh oil for the next batch.

Recipe Notes

Yields 8 latkes. Can double the recipe if needed! Even if you don’t like spicy food, use the half a chili pepper and just remove the seeds (and don’t touch your eyes!) It won’t be spicy but will add such a balance of flavor. If you don’t like or want to use Bulgarian cheese, use feta cheese and 1/2 the amount of salt.
