Sweet Potato-Apple Latkes

This fall, try something new with the Bayou state’s golden child, like this sweet and savory take on a fried potato pancake. These Sweet Potato-Apple Latkes blend savory sage and smoky paprika for a slightly addictive, crunchy appetizer. Topped with a lemony buttermilk sauce, eating healthful, vitamin-packed ingredients never tasted so good.
