Sweet Potato Latkes with Brie & Baby Arugula

I recently enjoyed the most amazing Blue Cheese and Arugula Pizza at a new restaurant in Brooklyn. Couldn’t stop dreaming about it—and this superb latke is the inspired result. Use blue cheese (for a tangy, bold, sweet and sour flavor) or brie (for a milder, creamy effect) and finish it off with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and freshly ground black pepper.


  • Prep Time : 8 min
  • Cook Time : 42 min
  • Ready Time : 50 min




  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • Canola oil for frying
  • 4 ounces brie cheese, cut into 16 slices
  • ½ cup baby arugula leaves


In a large bowl, mix together sweet potato, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, eggs, and milk. Heat ¼-inch oil in a large skillet
over medium heat.  Line a sheet pan with two layers of paper towels.  Working in batches, drop ¼ cup batter into oil, and flatten slightly into circles.  Fry until nicely browned, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from pan, and drain on the prepared pan, and continue with remaining

Preheat broiler.

Remove the paper towels from under the latkes. Place a slice of cheese on each latke and broil until cheese is slightly melted and bubbly
at the edges, about for 2 minutes.  Place two latkes on each appetizer plate and top with a few leaves of arugula.
