Sweet Potato Latkes w/ Sage Cream

photo 2-83

Traditional potato latkes are nice but if you like sweet potatoes as much as I do, you’re going to love these latkes.  Made with sweet potatoes and just a hint of sage, they are earthy and satisfying making them the perfect accompaniment for grilled meat.  I love to serve these with a dollop of sage cream sauce on top.  However, when I serve them with my Bourbon & Brown Sugar Marinated Flank Steak, I omit the cream and let the potatoes soak up the steak sauce.

SWEET POTATO LATKES w/ SAGE CREAM

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and grated

4 scallions, chopped

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs, lightly beaten

6 sprigs fresh sage, 3 chopped and 3 whole

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup sour cream or creme fraiche

Salt and pepper to taste

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Combine the sweet potato, scallions, flour, eggs, 2 chopped sage leaves, and salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl.
  • Use you hands to form the mixture into 2 inch patties.
  • Arrange the patties on the baking sheet.  Brush the olive oil over the top of each patty.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the bottoms have browned.
  • Flip the latkes and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sour cream or creme fraiche and the remaining sage in a small bowl.  Using a stick blender puree until smooth.
  • Season the latkes with salt and pepper and serve topped with the sour cream and sage mixture.
