Thyme or rosemary would also work great here if you can't find sage.
Sweet Potato Sage Latkes
This classic combo of sweet potatoes and sage does not disappoint. Cooked golden, crispy brown and served with tart-sweet applesauce, it’s the sweet savory combo we’re always chasing.
2 cups grated sweet potato
½ medium white onion, grated
1 tablespoon minced sage
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup AP or Cup 4 Cup flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Neutral high heat frying oil like sunflower, grapeseed or avocado oil
Applesauce, for serving
1. Combine the first six ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Heat a heavy bottom pan (we like a cast iron here) and add a few tablespoons of neutral oil. When the oil is shiny and hot, add about a scant ¼ cup of batter to the pan (they should be about 2 inches in diameter). Flip after a minute or two, when brown and crispy. Cook for another minute or two on the other side, then set on a paper towel lined plate, and sprinkle with flaky salt. Serve with applesauce.
