Sweet Potato Latkes


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • ½ onion
  • 3 whole eggs
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tbl brown sugar
  • ½ cup matzo meal
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil for frying


Shred sweet potato and onion.

Rinse the potato under cold water, then strained them with a colander. Place a cheesecloth over the potatoes, and squeeze the potatoes to release as much liquid as possible. Discard liquid.

In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, onions, eggs, sugar, matzo meal, cinnamon, gently mix well by hand.

Heat oil in a large heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Scoop from the mixture (about 3 ½ ounce portions) and drop in hot oil. Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain then in a paper towel or resting rack.
