Oven "fried" Sweet Potato Latkes


This recipe is a perfect side dish for winter. I've often had trouble with burning sweet potato pancakes and baking them avoids this problem altogether. Feel free to add more scallions or different spices and a lime chili yogurt makes the perfect accompaniment.

Yields about 12 latkes

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated 5 scallions, sliced 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 2 large eggs, Ed beaten 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon white pepper 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon chili powder 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425
  2. In large bowl stir together potatoes, scallions and flour
  3. In small bowl stir together eggs, salt, pepper, cumin and chili to combine thoroughly and add to sweet potato mixture. Add oil to mixture and stir again.
  4. On a large baking sheet, use ice cream scoop or large spoon to make a medium sized patty.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes and turn over and continue baking for another 20 minutes until both sides are golden brown.

Remove and serve hot!
