White Castle latkes win recipe contest

COLUMBUS — A woman crossed a traditional Hanukkah dish with White Castle hamburgers to win the annual recipe contest held by the Columbus-based chain.

Leslye Louis of New Melle, Mo., named her creation “The Latkes You Crave,” after White Castle’s slogan “What you crave.”

She made the Jewish potato pancakes with the usual ingredients, including grated potatoes and eggs, and also incorporated 10 chopped-up White Castle “slyders” — minus the pickles.

As part of her prize, Louis will receive a case of 30 of the burgers each week for a year.

Judges awarded second place to Philana Ford of Chicago for a Chinese dim sum appetizer recipe using White Castles. Betty McNees of Cincinnati won third for something called “Cook-Out Crave.”
