November 19, 2013

So psyched about this blog post! Not only did I get to shoot it with one of my closest friends @QC_Style, but we also got to combine 2 holidays in 1, which was a really fun and creative process.

This year Thanksgiving and Chanukah fall on the same day. Lots of different collaborative recipes are coming out. We decided to simply turn the traditional turkey Thanksgiving sandwich into a latke Thanksgiving sandwich. Such a fun twist!

Potato latkes

2 potatoes, grated and squeezed in a cheese cloth
1/2 onion grated and squeezed in a cheese cloth
1 tsp flour
1 egg
salt and pepper
(You can add whatever flavors you want to the latkes themselves, chili powder for some heat, fresh herbs etc.)
vegetable oil for frying

Cranberry Sauce:

2 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
pinch of cinnamon
Directions:
In a pan heat up a little oil (I used olive, but can be whatever you want) and place the cranberries in. Add the sugar, maple and cinnamon. Keep stirring on medium low until most of the cranberries have turned to mush and it is more saucy. if you want it to be sweeter add in more maple syrup. I like mine tangy with a little sweetness. 
Fried Sage:  (Heat up 1 cup of vegetable oil and when hot, place the sage in, it literally takes a second, then place on a piece of paper towel, use as a garnish…beautiful on almost anything)

Latke Turkey Sandwich
Make a batch of regular potato latkes. 
Place sliced turkey breast on top of the bottom latke and then place a nice dollop of the cranberry sauce on top, garnish with some freshly chopped chives and some fried sage (you can also put a little sour cream on the sandwich…yum) Serve just like that! Great for a leftover turkey meal or for a fun appetizer the night of.
All the pics and the video are shot by @QC_style. Watch the video, it is so cute! Great job Quinny!
