|Sweet Potato Latkes|
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (equals about 4 cups)
- 2 Tbsp. Applesauce
- 2 green onions, finely chopped
- ½ small onion, grated
- 1 cup Bisquick
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Sprinkle of black pepper
- Canola oil for frying
- Sour cream as “garnish”.
In a bowl, stir together potatoes, green onion, onion, apple, egg, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the bisquick mix and stir to combine.
Heat oil in a deep skillet over moderate high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4 or 5, spoon a large spoonful of the mixture into the oil and lightly flatten.
Reduce heat slightly and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer latkes with spatula to a plate layered with paper towels.
Once they sit for a moment or two and drain, transfer them to a cookie sheet. I keep them warm in the oven, till I serve them.
These are really good! I've had white potato ones before, but these are much better for you and have more flavor.
