If you're looking for a different way to make latkes this Hanukkah, try our sweet potato latkes with maple creme fraiche! Your family will love them just as much as we loved putting together this recipe.
For the latkes:
For the Maple Crème Fraiche:
1Grate the sweet potatoes in a food processor with the grater attachment.
2Remove the grated sweet potatoes to a bowl and add the scallions, flour, eggs, salt, and spices.
3Pour enough Colavita Olive Oil into a deep, 12-inch nonstick skillet to reach ¼” deep. Heat the oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking.
4Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 3 minutes on each side. Flip and cook another 3 minutes on the other side.
5Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.
6Next, prepare the maple crème fraiche. In a small bowl combine the crème fraiche and the maple syrup. Wisk until well combined.
7Serve the latkes hot with the maple crème fraiche.
