The 20 Essential Dishes for a Classic Hanukkah Dinner

Post Image

The taste of Hanukkah promises a spread of dishes that tell the story of the holiday. We rounded up 20 of the most-loved recipes from our archives and made sure to include not only plenty of latkes, but also everything from homemade challah and sufganiyot for the intrepid baker to a refreshing salad to break up all that richness.

Meaty Main Dishes

The star dish for many Hanukkah dinner tables is brisket. It’s a show-stopping centerpiece that’s as classic as it gets, which is why we love it. For something a little different but equally as fitting, we also love a wintery braise filled with semolina dumplings.

All the Latkes

Hanukkah just wouldn’t be Hanukkah without latkes. Frying up the potato version is only the beginning, however. We also are equally happy with simple riffs, like latkes made with parsnips or even spaghetti squash.

Other Great Side Dishes

It’s nice to have another side dish to go along with the latkes — especially if it lends a little veggie power to the meal. Roasted Brussels sprouts or a crisp fennel salad would be perfect additions. Having challah at the table is also an excuse to make C868彩票:French toast the next morning.

Equally as classic as brisket and latkes are puffy, powdered sugar-coated jelly doughnuts. Beyond that decadent treat, we also are fans of rugelach, macaroons, and fritters.
