    I’ve also done baked butternut squash latkes but never baked them. I fried them in a little oil. but the taste was amazing. i use instead of the nutmeg a little cinnamon or allspice with a dash of brown sugar

    You know how annoying it is when you buy ingredients and then 2hen your ready to start cooking can’t find them. I bought 4sweet potatoes today 3 for this recipe and ond for soup. Will a neighbor comes by asks to borrow swet potatoes husband sees 4 knows its just the 2 of usvso gives 2 away. So this recipe had one Idaho potato init and 2 sweet potatoes it did come out really good the only thing was I had to bake it for longer. I don’t think it was because of the white potato though. Of all the latkes so far i personal like this the best so far haven’t finished trying all

    The taste was really nice! I added another egg because it was falling apart with only 2.

    • Thanks for letting us know both that you liked them and that you needed the extra egg.

    These were great – we had two enormous sweet potatoes and I still added the extra egg as was suggested. I would make these again.

  5. Good taste and no grease; but, we missed the crispy crunch.

  6. We loved these latkes ! Only changed only one thing. I made a vegan version along with the recipe. Both were really great. The gingered sour cream really surprised us it really added a kick and went well sith the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Yams really in my region.
