Broccoli Cheese Latkes Recipe

Latkes are a win-win in our house – we all love them and they disappear extremely quickly. But having a toddler who has suddenly become more picky with her food choices, I am having to get a little creative with hiding the veggies. So with our latest batch of latkes, I added broccoli (a lot of broccoli!) to our regular batter and they turned out great! You could barely even taste the broccoli in them. ๐Ÿ™‚
