  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 mini Sweet Peppers, diced (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Green Onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Cooking Oil
  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • 4 medium Sweet Potatoes
  1. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes. Pierce one sweet potato several places with a sharp knife.
  2. Microwave one sweet potato until the skin can be easily pierced with a knife, about 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Allow to cool.
  3. Remove roasted sweet potato from skin. Mash with a fork.
  4. Peel remaining sweet potatoes and grate using a box grater (if you don’t have a grater, chop into small pieces).
  5. Stir together mashed sweet potato, grated sweet potatoes, flour, peppers, salt and half of the green onions.
  6. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and drop tablespoonfuls of potato mixture into skillet, pressing lightly to flatten. Cook 5-6 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  7. Just before serving, sprinkle with remaining green onions, and serve with lime wedges, if using. Enjoy!
