Latke is the Yiddish word for potato pancake. Made either from shredded potatoes or mashed potatoes, latkes are griddle-cooked until they develop a crisp skin, then are served with garnishes of sour cream and/or apple sauce. Latkes can be the centerpiece of a meal, but their role more often is as a side dish. Manny’s Deli in Chicago offers a corned beef sandwich in which latkes are used instead of rye bread.
