These savory sweet potato pancakes are perfect for lunch or dinner. Pair them with a chive dipping sauce for the perfect combination of sweet and savory.
Potato pancakes have always been on the top of my “most loved” foods. My uncle has a recipe that is amazing and I can never get enough of them when he makes it.
These pancakes, however, are made from sweet potatoes. Sweet potato pancakes are just as delicious and have a sweetness that I just can’t resist.
This sweet potato pancake recipe is savory – think latkes for lunch or dinner. A breakfast sweet potato pancake is next on my list to create because I want these pancakes all day, every day.
Hot to Make Sweet Potato Pancakes
This recipe is easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. The flavors are simple but that’s why I like this recipe so much.
Begin by dicing up raw sweet potatoes and roasting them in the oven with a little salt and pepper. When the cooked sweet potatoes have cooled, mash them with a potato masher or a fork. I usually pull out a fork because I don’t like cleaning the masher.
Pour the panko bread crumbs in a shallow bowl or plate. Form the sweet potato mash into small balls and roll them in the bread crumbs.
Heat some oil in a frying pan and drop the sweet potato balls into the pan. Use the back of a spatula to flatten the sweet potato balls into pancakes. Flip the pancakes over when its crispy on one side and remove from the pan when its crispy on both.
Chive Dipping Sauce
The chive dipping sauce is a made with greek yogurt and is perfect. Yeah, I said it – it’s perfect.
I’m a big fan of easy recipes and 4 ingredients is my kind of sauce.
All you need to do is mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Then plop a dollop on top of your pile of pancakes and you’re good to go.
If you want a dipping sauce that’s even more savory, try these pancakes with my blue cheese dip.
I bought all of my ingredients for this recipe from Peapod. I love having my groceries delivered – I get more time to cook and eat all of my delicious creations.
