Two-Potato Party Latkes

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 latke)
Shredding an onion sounds odd, but it's surprisingly easy. we liked these latkes better when the potatoes and onion were shredded on a hand grater rather than in the food processor.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups shredded peeled sweet potato (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups shredded peeled baking potato (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 cup shredded fresh onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided

How to Make It

  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in the beaten egg whites. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spoon 4 (1/2-cup) potato patties into the skillet, and flatten slightly with a spatula; sauté for 7 minutes. Carefully turn the patties over, and cook for 7 minutes or until patties are golden. Repeat the procedure with 2 teaspoons vegetable oil and the remaining potato mixture.
