Not very traditional, but good for those who want to celebrate Chanukah and still keep to their diets (the words Chanukah and diet usually cancel each other out).

These were good. I was surprised by how crispy they got just from baking and not frying. I used pre-shredded frozen potatoes, cause i'm lazy and put the chives in the potatoes, not just to garnish. Very good, thanks!
