In 2013, the second night of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 28.) Some are referring to this year’s unique Hanukkah-Thanksgiving crossover as “Thanksgivukkah.” Thanksgivukkah will not happen again for 70,000 years.
What do you serve for Hanukkah when it falls on Thanksgiving?
Try latkes with Thanksgiving flair. Potatoes take center stage at Hanukkah dinner and provide a tasty side dish at the Thanksgiving feast. Cook potato latkes Thanksgiving-style by using fall vegetables found at the Thanksgiving table.
Try Sweet Potato Latkes. “Hanukkah” and “Latkes” or Butternut Squash Latkes with Sage and Pine Nut Yogurt Sauce

While latkes and turkey make a beautiful pairing, it’s these fall sides that will really make your meal shine:
- Maple-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts
- Gluten Free Horseradish Mushroom Baked Potatoes
- Challah Bread Mushroom Stuffing with Wild Rice and Mushrooms
