Sweet potato latkes have become a tradition of mine during Hanukkah season.
This year it was no different. The recipe is pretty basic and can be easily altered.

Grated sweet potatoes, scallions, salt & pepper, beaten egg, paprika, flour.

In terms of the method – latkes are usually fried in oil, on both sides.

With sweet potatoes, the sugar content is very high, and they burn quite easily.

To prevent this, I fried latkes on one side for a few minutes, until the edges started to brown. Then, I flipped them on the other side and placed the entire pan in a preheated 375F oven for 10 minutes. They were delicious.

I had them with sour cream, BBQ sauce (homemade), and chopped cilantro.

Happy holidays.
