Sweet Potato Latkes

Latkes are delicious. But most recipes call for white potatoes, lots of oil, and sour cream. We used sweet potatoes to create a healthier version of a traditional favorite that your family will love. Also try these Baked Cauliflower Latkes.

These sweet potato latkes can be made one day ahead. Follow steps 1 to 4, then cover the baking sheet with foil and store in the refrigerator. Bake them right before serving, allowing a little extra cooking time if needed.

Serve these as part of your holiday meal, as a healthy side dish with chicken or fish, or top them with a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt and unsweetened applesauce as a snack.
