What’s For Dinner? Sweet Potato Latkes

Oh how I love these tasty little latkes! They are a great side dish with prime rib or steak…add a little dollop of sour cream…heaven!

Sweet Potato Latkes

Worth the effort.  Healthy.  Delish! My kind of food!


Sweet Potato Latkes


  • 1 lb sweet potato or yam (peeled & grated)
  • 1 onion (grated)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 3 sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp curry (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Combine the grated sweet potato, grated onion, and lemon juice. Put the mixture into a towel and squeeze out all the moisture.
  2. Then put it all into a bowl and add the eggs, green onions, flour and spices. Combine.

There are 2 ways you can cook these:

  1. You can cook them in a frying pan, using 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying OR
  2. We like to use a pancake griddle, and lightly spray it with Pam. Uses a fraction of the oil, and works just as well!

Now it’s time to cook them:

  1. Just scoop large spoonfuls of mix, and flatten them with a spatula.
  2. Fry for about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. If you want to make the whole batch up at the same time, put the cooked latkes in a 300 degree oven until dinner time!


Don’t make the latkes too big, or they won’t cook properly.
