Last week, we asked our Facebook fans if and how they’ll be celebrating “Thanksgivukkah,” the hybrid holiday of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. Many of you said you WILL be taking advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, since the next time the two holidays will overlap won’t be for almost 78,000 years! You gave us some really creative and tasty ideas, but if you’re still looking for that perfect Thanksgivukkah dish, consider this our gift to you: Three side dish recipes that perfectly pair Thanksgiving food with traditional Jewish fare.
Potato latkes are a Hanukkah staple. Rather than topping sweet potatoes with marshmallows, sub them in to Sweet Potato-Apple Latkes with Cranberry Sauce, your Turkey’s favorite condiment!
No Thanksgiving table is complete without stuffing. Make a sweet version using Challah, a traditional Jewish bread, for Fruited Brioche Stuffing.
And because every holiday party needs a great appetizer, make these Smoked Salmon Bagel Bites, a finger food-version of a typical Sunday morning Hanukkah breakfast.
