Cheddar Stuffed Latke Balls and Tomato Soup
This year for Hanukkah I partnered with Manischewitz to bring you an all NEW Kosher in the Kitch Latke remix! This here is my take on the classic comfort food combo of grilled cheese and soup, Chanukah edition! Crispy latke balls stuffed with creamy cheddar cheese served over savory roasted tomato soup.
For the Cheddar Stuffed Latke Balls
1 6oz. package Manischewitz potato pancake mix
5 large eggs
2 1/4 cups water
1 8oz. block of cheddar, cut into small cubes
2 cups corn flake crumbs
For the Tomato Soup
1 container of cherry tomatoes
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
1 can of diced fire roasted tomatoes (14.5oz)
3 cups of Manischewitz Vegetable Broth
For the Cheddar Stuffed Latke Balls:
Beat 2 eggs then combine with water and add contents of Manischewitz potato pancake mix.
Allow batter to thicken.
Place in fridge for an additional 10 minutes to further thicken.
Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of batter then place in your hand and stuff a small cube of cheddar in the center, rolling the batter around to form a ball.
Dip in eggs then corn flake crumbs and fry until golden brown on all sides.
Skewer together several latke balls then serve over tomato soup.
For Tomato Soup:
Place cherry tomatoes in a baking pan.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Coat well.
Place in oven on 400′ for 30-35 minutes until beginning to brown.
Once the tomatoes are roasted, saute onions and garlic with remaining olive oil.
Once golden, add the broiled tomatoes and allow to cook for 2 minutes.
Add the canned tomatoes and mix well.
Allow to cook for 2 minutes.
Add the broth and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Puree with an immersion blender and serve with cheddar stuffed latke balls.
