Baked Sweet-Potato Latkes

2 Aug

Woke up hungry today, so I decided not to fight it and just make something yummy for lunch (got up at 12:00 so it’s legitimate in my eyes to skip breakfast).

Making latkes always gets me thinking about me grandma. In her last years she lived with us, and we never quite got used to waking up at 7:00 to go to school and smelling the chicken soup she was making for lunch, but that’s just how old polish woman are, waking up at 4:00 and starting cooking for the family.

One small comment: Why do I bake and not fry? The year is 2012 people, is there someone alive that doesn’t know frying isn’t good for you?

2 sweet potatoes
1 potato
1 large onion, chopped and fried
30 grams of butter
1 egg
1 cup bread crumbs
Chopped parsley
Ground black pepper and salt

Cream dip:
Sour cream
Crushed garlic
Chopped chives
Salt and pepper

Once in the pan, give the latkes a small squash

  1. Boil the potato and the sweet potatoes until they are soft.
    Mash them with the butter.
  2. Mix the mash and the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and season it.
    Let it chill for a bit.
  3. Make latkes with semi-wet hands, put in pan covered with a greased baking sheet.
  4. Put in the oven (200°c) for about 30 min (depends on your oven), flip sides after 15 min.

In my opinion, you should really serve the dish with the dip, it upgrades the whole thing.

Try not to eat it all at once, I know it’s hard.
Any volunteers for doing the dishes?
