Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Latkes

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 lbs. Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 c. Gluten-Free Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 3 Large Eggs (beaten)
  • 1 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • Canola Oil (enough to coat your frying pan)

Directions:

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes.
  2. Using a hand grater or a food processor, shred the sweet potatoes.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes on a towel or cheese cloth, and squeeze the excess liquid out.
  4. Place the shredded sweet potatoes into a large bowl, and add the beaten eggs, gluten-free panko bread crumbs, salt, and cinnamon.  Use a fork to fully mix the ingredients.
  5. Let the mixture rest for 15 minutes.
  6. In a frying pan/skillet add oil and place over medium heat.
  7. Once the oil is heated, scoop up 3-4 tbsps. of the potato mixture, use your hands to form into a patty, and place into the oil.  You can cook more than one sweet potato latke at a time, but make sure you don’t crowd the pan/skillet.
  8. Cook the latkes for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Once browned on each side, remove the latkes from the pan, and place on a cooling rack.  You may want to place your cooling rack over towels or a plate to collect any excess oil.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
