GUYS! Holy time change batman!! This last week has been rough. It took us a good week to get back on schedule and stop feeling so exhausted. I wrote about this a bit on my Insta, but it felt kinda like I fell off the hamster wheel and I couldn’t figure out how to get back on. Well, Monday happened. I woke up, drank my coffee, and decided to get back on the horse. Or, wheel to extend my aforementioned metaphor. Recipes coming atchu like whoa.

So, it’s December. I love being home. I love that I got off the plane and was slung into the Christmas spirit. The stockings are hung. The cards are ordered. The carols are on repeat. And apparently I’m the pickiest tree buyer ever because, well, we don’t have one yet even though we’ve gone a couple of times to pick one out. This girl’s got standards. Or at least that’s what I decided at some point in college. Ha!

Last year I came up with some yummy veggie latkes for the holiday season. If nothing else, check them out to see how far my food photography has come 🙂 Whether it’s munching on them as appetizers for holiday parties, or serving them for your Hanukkah dinner, everyone loves a good potato pancake. Me? I like to get creative with what I put in them and what I put on them. I’m looking at you, fig jam!

Sweet Potato Pancakes + Fig Jam

These are super simple and honestly, the prettiest, most delicious, most creative, most awesome potato pancake you’ll ever eat. Let’s face it, it’s really a fancy hash brown. Why restrict it for appetizers and dinners? Smash an avocado and pop a fried egg on top. Best brekkie ever.

So here’s how you make these yummy Sweet Potato Pancakes with Fig Jam:

Sweet Potato Pancakes + Fig Jam

Chop your shallot and spiralize your sweet potato. I like to keep the skin on my sweet potato. It gives it a heartier and more rustic feel. Who am I kidding? I’m just lazy.

In a bowl, combine the shallot, sweet potato, eggs, pepper, and salt. Set aside in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Place the coconut oil in a pan. Turn it on high until the oil is melted and hot. Turn the heat down to medium.

Grab a handful of spiralized potato mixture. I used kitchen scissors to cut off some potato strands when I have enough in my hand.

Form a ball, packing it tight. Place the ball into the oil and allow to sit for about a minute. Then, with the back of your spatula, press the ball down into a patty. Cook for another minute, or two, then flip. Cook the other side for two minutes and then remove to a plate lined with a paper towel.

Repeat this process until your mixture is used up. I did three batches, making 6 patties total. I suggest only putting 2-3 patties in the pan at a time.

Top your potato pancakes with a dollop of sour scream and fig jam. I got all fancy and put a rosemary sprig on top.Sweet Potato Pancakes + Fig Jam
