Best Recipe For Sweet Potato ‘Latkes’-Happy Thanksgiving

If you’re looking for a last minute menu idea, how about sweet potato latkes?  They’re easy to fix and

I still love the traditional sweet potato and marshmallow side dish, but this Thanksgiving, I wanted to add something new to the menu.  This is a dish served during Hanukkah, but I thought it would pair nicely with stuffing and turkey.

Here’s the basic recipe

1 lb of sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (with cheese grater)

2 small onions peeled

2 large eggs-beaten

1/3 cup of flour

2 tablespoons corn starch

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Sour cream

Cumin

 

In a bowl mix together sweet potatoes, onions, flour, corn starch,  eggs, salt and pepper. Over medium-high heat,  add oil to large skillet-preferably non-stick or cast iron if you have one

I form the latkes like hamburgers, only thinner.  Work in batches of 4 for best results.  Flatten them with your spatula and let them cook for about 2 minutes on each side-depending on how thin you make them.   When they look golden brown and are crispy around the edges, transfer them to a plate with paper towel to absorb oil.

For sour cream dip: Combine 1/2 cup of sour cream with 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, or, add your favorite spices like cinnamon or ginger.  Add a dollop to your latke and enjoy.
