Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Pancakes with an Herb Ranch Dip
This sweet potato pancake (latkes) recipe has a wonderful combination of sweet and spice. They are baked instead of being fried so they are a healthy option for people celebrating Hanukkah.
Prep Time: 20minutes
Cook Time: 40minutes
Total Time: 1hour
1large sweet potato
2-3medium white potatoes
1small onion, minced
2eggs, lightly beaten
Grate the white and sweet potatoes. Squeeze the potatoes to get rid of as much liquid as possible.
In a large bowl, mix the grated potatoes, onion, eggs, flour, milk, salt, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, thyme and cayenne pepper.
Lightly oil a cookie sheet using a pastry brush or spritzer. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop out pancake batter onto the cookie sheet. Flatten them so they are about 1/2 inch thick or a little less.
Bake in a 400F oven for 30-40 minutes, flipping them halfway through. The pancakes should brown and crisp up. If they have not crisped up enough, bake them a little bit longer.
Beat the remaining ingredients together to make the herb ranch dip.
Serve the pancakes immediately after removing from the oven with the herb ranch dip.
