I love a good latke. I think about a good latke year-round: its crisp, frizzled edges; its tender, lightly salted, herby interior. Its glossy, swoopy toppings of equal parts sour cream and apple sauce, plus a hefty sprinkling of flaky salt and chopped chives—a matter of personal preference, to be sure.

But even I get latke fatigue, come night four or five of the Festival of Lights.

When I do, I turn to my other Hanukkah favorites: dishes that aren't necessarily traditional, but are a celebration of the miracle of oil, all the same. And you know what? I haven't received a complaint to-date.

Here are 17 Hanukkah dinner party menu standbys for those nights when I just can't eat another latke:
