Grandma Frieda's Sweet Potato Latkes

 
Grandma Frieda's Sweet Potato Latkes

Another favorite from my Grandmother Frieda (yes she brought this recipe with her from the old country), the rumor is that when her parents arrived in Chicago (circa 1900) all they could find was sweet potatoes. This recipe has been passed down through 4 generations, Grandma Frieda, thanks for being one of the best mentors I ever had (and a great cook too). You will always be one of the original Sirens of Sherwood. Thanks for the love.

Ingredients:

2 lg. cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
3 eggs, beaten
2 carrots, grated and lightly steamed
1 lg. zucchini, grated
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients except oil.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over low heat for 2 minutes.
Drop 2- tablespoons of the sweet potato mixture into hot oil. Use spatula to flatten pancakes slightly.
Cook each pancake for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Test for doneness.
Serve immediately or keep warm in oven.
