Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Latkes

Filled with onion and black pepper, these latkes showcase the savory side of sweet potatoes. If you prefer your sweet potatoes a little sweeter, add one peeled, grated Granny Smith apple to the mixture.

To ensure crispy latkes, fry no more than three latkes at a time. This ensures that oil doesn't get cold. Cold oil equals greasy latkes!
