Sweet Potato Latkes (Pancakes)

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a family favorite! You can add in some cumin, cayenne and cinnamon too. You might want to increase the recipe to 3 pounds of sweet potatoes along with the other ingredients, these are so good! If you are adding in the cumin, cayenne and cinnamon, then omit fresh garlic. Yield is only estimated depending on the size of pancake.

These are awesome just the way they are. I am always afraid of latkes because I really don't like undercooked potatoes, but these were really great. All I had were spring onions, which are sort of between regular yellow and green onions and I think that the green part really add to the yum factor.
I may try to spice them up sometime too, but I made them this way and really enjoyed them. I normally do NOT like using EVOO for cooking as I find most brands develop an off flavor, but I found one that doesn't do that and used it. I really added to the flavor!! LOVE IT, thank you so much!
