8 Oil-Fried Foods for Hanukkah

November 29, 2012

Hanukkah is a great excuse to let the oil flow and fry, fry away. Latkes and jelly donuts are the usual slick and crispy suspects, but they're not the only foods you can throw in the pan, which is why we've gathered eight great oil-fried recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday. Some are a little different, like crispy fried rings of squash, and some are, well, latkes -- but all are delicious.

I can't get enough eggplant or whole grain mustard. I like it when desserts are too sweet.

Would frying olives in Olive Oil for the olive all'Ascolana be considered cannibalism?
