Spicy Sweet Potato Latkes


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated (2 cups)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon matzo meal or unsalted cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 teaspoon TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Parsley sprigs (optional)


Combine grated sweet potato, scallions, egg, matzo meal, TABASCO® Sauce and salt in medium bowl.

Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Working with half of the mixture at a time, drop 1/4 cup of the mixture into the skillet, spreading with back of the spoon to a 3-inch round. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, turning once. Repeat with remaining mixture, adding more oil if necessary. Serve immediately. Garnish with parsley sprigs if desired.

Makes 8 latkes.
