Sweet Potato Latkes
1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated.
2 scallions finely chopped.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour.
2 large eggs, lightly beaten.
1 tsp salt.
1/2 tsp black pepper.
3/4 cup vegetable oil.
Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs,salt and pepper.
Heat oil in deep 12-inch non-stick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in baches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into hot oil anud flatten to 3-inch diameter. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 11/2 minutes on each side. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
I use a larger skillet, electric – and enlist the family to grate the taters.
I’d at least double the recipe. We like latkes.
