Latke recipe wins White Castle Cook Off

A Missouri 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 named her creation "The Latkes You Crave," after White Castle's slogan "What you crave." She made the Jewish 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.

The runner-up was dim sum. The winning recipe's not available on the official site yet.
