14 Nov

A great way to enjoy sweet potatoes. This recipe can be easily adapted to your tastes, by changing the seasonings or adding in other veggies. Serve as an appetizer or side dish.

Time: 3o minutes            Serves: 4


  • 1 pound sweet potato, peeled & grated – about 5 cups
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp – 1/4 cup AP flour
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • sea salt & black pepper, freshly ground – to taste (I used about 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper)
  • cooking spray

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Combine potato, eggs, 2 tbsp flour and seasonings in a large mixing bowl. Add more flour as needed for the mixture to just hold together.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Take small handfuls of mixture and drop onto skillet, pressing down lightly to even out. Cook for about 3 minutes, then turn and cook an additional 3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a foil lined baking sheet and place in oven. Bake for 5 minutes on each side.
