I am such a huge fan of Latkes. Those wonderful potato pancakes. Around our house, it is a traditional breakfast on Christmas morning. The kids got to play with the toy that Santa brought while I whipped a few up. No gifts from Mom and dad till after breakfast. So I always associate warm family times with them.
These are a Daphne's healthy version and my my... dare I say better than my original?
I saw her make these and knew they would be on my must make list. I adore sweet potatoes, combined with a snappy granny smith apple and a little bit of carrot, this just screamed healthy... But it also was just delicious. Would make a fine alternative side dish for dinner.
But when you top them with the poached egg, it is simply a wonderful breakfast!
I do need to quibble with the servings, as I made this exactly as posted on The Chew website (Click HERE for the recipe). the recipe says it serves 5. I made this for a lunch for my wife and myself. It served two and only two. Maybe we were just hungry. Maybe I used a small potato. Or, maybe it was just that good.
I'm gonna say it's that good.
It was about a tie in the amount of time it would take to grate by hand vs. grating in a food processor. But, if I were making enough for a larger family, I would recommend the processor.
Plus, I didn't grate my knuckles.
Aside from the processor, no changes to the recipe.

I did like the poached egg that Daphne used. Personally, I like a VERY runny egg, my wife prefers a runny egg, but not as much as mine. Poaching is a very easy way to cook to order.
But honestly... what a great dish!
