Happy Thanksgivukkah! 4 Chef-Approved Recipes For Your Mash-Up Holiday

As we've mentioned before, the first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving this year. The unlikely convergence has created a super-holiday known as Thanksgivukkah, which we won't see again for about 70,000 years. Luckily, there's some crossover between traditional Hanukkah fare and the stuff usually found on the Thanksgiving table. We asked a few chefs to get their creative gears cranking and come up with some festive side dishes that could work perfectly in both worlds. Looking for latkes? Swap out the spuds for sweet potatoes. What about apple pie? Try Concord-grape-jelly-filled doughnuts instead.
Click through to see all of the fantastic recipes — and try as hard as you can to wait until Thanksgivukkah.
