Baked Sweet Potato Latke Recipe
I was asked to write down this recipe, so here it is, more or less.
Baked Sweet Potato Latkes
Shred 1 sweet potato per eater. (I used a food processor)
Put in a bowl and add 1 egg per eater anda few finely chopped dates
add matza meal to make a thick dough
salt, pepper, ginger, cinnamon and a couple of healthy glugs of olive oil
mix well bake on greased pan. I baked my latkes on parchment paper but they lacked a certain lushness that baking on a greased pan can achieve. The more austere version were eaten enthusiastically, but probably would have been eaten more enthusiastically if they had been baked on a more heavily greased pan.
The latkes would be improved by the addition of broken pecans, or small bits of dried fruit or candied ginger.
They were baked at 350 until they were done, maybe 15 minutes, but I wasn’t looking at the clock.
