Made from scratch, easy mini Potato Latkes topped with sweet roasted cherry tomatoes, smoked salmon, and cooling sour cream! This scrumptious appetizer not only has festive colors of red, green, and white but also is very easy to prepare. Seriously, latkes are ready by the time cherry tomatoes roast in oven..... then just assemble and serve! How easy does that sound?

Do you too believe food is the BEST part of any holiday gathering??

I mean, look at these gorgeous mini latkes or pancakes with beautiful array of festive colors! A few simple toppings have added the magic?!

Serve potato latkes mini as party starter or larger for holiday breakfast, they are perfect either way!!

Aren't these looking yumm?!

I'm huge fan of cooking a lots of food for holidays. For the record, there is something really special about cooking and serving homemade food to friends and family!

Our holiday dinners are mostly just special friends and family..... and whether it is our house or someone else's, I'm often in-charge of bringing appetizers and hear...

This really sounds like a great appetizer for Christmas, I will keep it in mind. And I love cooking lots and lots of stuff for celebrations like this as well, it means a lot of work and time, but I love every minute of it.
