Best Way to Reheat Latkes

Most latkes are best served fresh and hot, but there’s a way to reheat them, so they taste just as tasty as when they first pan-fried. There are many ways to reheat latkes to ensure that at least some of your dinner gets eaten again.

Can You Reheat Latkes in an Oven?

Yes, you can easily reheat it over the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Lay frozen latke patties on the lined baking sheet and place in the oven until warmed through, about 12 minutes; turning once halfway to cook both sides. Serve immediately with sour cream or applesauce if desired.

Can You Reheat Latkes in a Microwave?

Another popular way to heat leftover latkes is in the microwave. Prepare a microwave-safe plate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove it and spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Put the latkes on the plate and microwave them for 30 seconds.

Flip them over and microwave them for another 30 seconds. Enjoy with sour cream or applesauce, if desired.

Can You Reheat Latkes on the Stove?

Place the latkes on a lightly oiled skillet over low heat. Cook gently until warm (about five minutes). Add more oil if necessary, but don’t cook them too much, or the outsides will get crispy and hard while the insides remain cold and doughy. This method works best with a stovetop grill to keep the pan at an even temperature throughout.

Can You Reheat Latkes on a Grill?

Reheating Latkes on a grill is a quick and easy way to get that crunch you desire while still enjoying the flavor of your favorite Chanukah side dish.

Warm the grill for indirect cooking at a medium-high temperature (about 375 degrees F). Make sure the grill is clean and well oiled. Place the latkes on a sprayed or oiled mesh screen and place them on the indirect side of the grill. Cover and heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until heated through, turning once halfway through.

Can You Reheat Latkes in a Toaster Oven?

Set the toaster oven to 450 degrees and preheat for 5 minutes. Place only two latkes at a time in the toaster oven and only put as many latkes in as will fit without touching each other.

The latkes should take about 10 minutes to get crispy again. If you need more than one batch, you might have to reheat the first batch while you’re cooking the second batch. The key is not to over-crowd them.

Can You Reheat Latkes in an Air Fryer?

Get your air fryer ready. Initially, heat your air fryer to 400 F and ensure the basket is in place (some baskets slide in and out). Put your latkes in the basket and close it with the lid. Stir your latkes around so they heat evenly and don’t stick to the basket or each other.

Once all of your latkes are heated through (about 5 minutes), serve them immediately or put them in an oven on low to keep them warm until you’re ready to eat.

How to Reheat Latkes Without Overcooking?

To avoid overcooking, make sure that the oil has cooled completely. You do not want the oil to be hot when frying your latkes. If the oil is still hot, the latkes will stick and burn, so make sure it cools before warming them up.

How Long to Reheat Latkes?

The time it takes to reheat latkes will vary based on several factors. The size of the latkes and the kitchen appliance you’re using will be important, but the most important factor is the reheating temperature.

What Temperature is Needed to Reheat Latkes?

While the exact temperature needed to reheat latkes depends on different things, including how hot they got cooked initially and how long they sit out before being reheated. It is important to reheat latkes slowly and at a low temperature. Here we have mentioned the ideal reheating temperature of lasagna for each piece of kitchen equipment.
