Sweet Potato and Scallion Latkes

I made some of the traditional potato latkes last night and they were fantastic!  In keeping with the spirit of Chanukah, here is another latke recipe.  If you've never tried these before, you simply must.  They are amazing!

Sweet Potato and Scallion Latkes

- 2 pounds sweet potatoes - peeled, grated and squeezed through cheesecloth or a strainer.
- 1 bunch scallions - trimmed, sliced to 1/8 inch both greens and whites
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons matzo meal (you could also use flour)
- Pinch of allspice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Heat oil over medium high heat and drop tablespoons of batter into hot oil. Flatten with a spatula. Fry on both sides until gold around the edges. Remove and drain on paper briefly before serving.
