Sweet Potato Latkes

So, it’s basically a given, when Kim and I are together on a lazy morning, that we’re making something fun for breakfast. Well, she brought quite a few sweet potatoes with her from home, which naturally means that we’re making something fun with sweet potatoes for breakfast.

I walked into the kitchen this morning to find her preparing Sweet Potato Latkes!

She followed this recipe, but as is usual and expected from Kim and my cooking, she added her own flair to them with a bit of chili and curry powder. 😛

2 grated sweet potatoes
1 small onion, grated
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp curry powder

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray or butter cookie sheets. We ground the sweet potatoes and onion in a food processor instead of grating it, and it seemed to work fine. Combine all ingredients. Spoon about 1/3 cupfuls onto cookie sheet; flatten.

Bake 25 minutes. Flip over, bake another 15 minutes. Should be slightly crispy. We enjoyed them with greek yogurt, but the original recipe suggests a dollop of sour cream.

Kim’s addition of chili and curry was great! It added a nice punch that made this originally sweet dish have a hint of savory to it.

Great breakfast Kim! Thanks!
