Sweet Potato Pancakes/Latkes

We took a traditional potato pancake recipe and switched to sweat potato. The result was very flavorful.

1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated
1/2 onion, grated
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons STAR Orginal Olive Oil, or more if needed
1/2 teaspoon salt

For condiments:
apple sauce
or Sour cream with some dill and smoked Alaskan wild salmon as pictured

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with paper towels.
Place the grated onion into a bowl with the grated sweet potato. Stir the eggs, salt and pepper into the mixture until well combined.

Heat the STAR Original Olive Oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, and spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture per patty into the hot oil. Flatten the patties with a fork, and fry until golden brown and crisp on the bottom, 5 to 8 minutes.

Flip and cook on the other side, when done set the cooked patties aside on the prepared baking sheet in the preheated oven while you finish cooking the latkes. Stir the potato mixture before cooking each batch of patties.

Serve hot with applesauce, yogurt, sour creme with dill and smoked Alaskan salmon or other condiments.
