If you’re planning out a menu for your next family gathering or looking for an easy side dish to pair with your weeknight dinner, then this recipe for one of my favorite side dishes is perfect for you. These Root Veggie Latkes will always fit the bill!

They’re my The Myers Way®-approved take on traditional Latkes, that are just as mouthwatering and delicious!

In this recipe, I used sweet potatoes, parsnips, and beets, as well as onion and spices, for the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and crispy deliciousness!

The gelatin serves as a binder, so you don’t have to reach for eggs. Plus, you can get creative with toppings from salmon to applesauce to serve at any time of the day. Your family will be asking for these over and over again!
