See how easy it is to create potato pancake latkes with sweet potatoes.
Right now I cannot get enough sweet potatoes. I add them to casseroles, grill them, pan fry them, and whatever I can think of. Here is my latest idea.
We aren’t Jewish, but we love Latkes (potato pancakes). We don’t make them very often because of the carbs in the potatoes. With Passover coming up, I’ve seen a few latke recipes posted. It got me craving them but I didn’t want the extra carbs. It dawned on me that I can substitute sweet potato and almond flour.
Low Carb Sweet Potato Latkes
You need to peel and shred the sweet potatoes. I use a food processor to shred the potatoes.
Heat oil over medium to medium-high heat in a frying pan. Mix the remaining ingredients. When oil is ready drop a forkful of the mix into the oil. I was able to do 4 at a time. Fry for a few minutes per side. The length of frying time depends on how brown or crispy you want them.
When they are done pull them from the pan (I use my handy dandy Latke Spatula) and placed them on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the extra oil. Only let them sit a minute or so because they are best served warm!
Serve these sweet potato pancakes with your favorite toppings. The other night we had them smothered with Ranch Style Beans and cheese dip. They are also great with eggs on top. I just can’t seem to get enough. As I was typing up this recipe, I had to stop and make some for breakfast.
Have you ever had potato pancake latkes? What do you think of making them with sweet potatoes? What would you serve on top of yours?
