My mom has been making these since before I was born and they are ALWAYS popular topped with sour cream and/or applesauce (I like to smoosh both toppings together on my plate and dip my latkes in them).
1. Grate the onions, sweet potatoes, and apples (this order keeps them from browning). I strongly suggest using a food processor to do this. If you’re doing this by hand, only grate the sweet potato and finely dice the apples and onions.
2. Mix grated stuff with the eggs, flour, salt, and pepper.
3. Heat 1/8 inch of oil in the bottom of a large skillet. Let the latke batter sit while the oil is heating (at least 2 minutes).
4. Place the batter by the heaping soup spoonfuls in the hot oil, flattening the mounds so that they form pancakes about 3 inches in diameter.
5. Brown well, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
6. Set on a paper towel-lined plate and serve hot.
Makes 12 pancakes, 4 to 6 servings.
This version is a more traditional Latke, with the potato and onion shredded. You can eat them plain or add something on top for an extra “wow” factor – like these with salmon, dill, and sour cream.
NOTE: prep time is based on you using a food processor to grate the potatoes, and the ability to fry 4 latkes at a time.
