Sweet Potato Pancakes
This morning I grew tired of the original fare of cereal/oatmeal and milk. So, a veggie alternative! This is a very easy and doesn’t take that long to make (<15 mins), the only moderately difficult thing would be grating the sweet potato. And I admit, the wrist does hurt after shredding those silly tubers, but the flavor and satisfaction definitely outweighs the effort.
Makes 3 medium pancakes or 4 small ones
You will need!
1  whole sweet potato (washed)
1 tablespoon cold butter
one egg
2 tbsp all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
a couple of slices of white cheddar (optional - but delicious!)
The Procedure
Grate the whole potato - skins and all!
in a bowl mix the egg and sweet potato together
place butter in cast-iron skillet (or any pan, I just like cast iron), melt on medium-high heat
Mix flour into potato mixture, stir until all flour is incorporated
Add salt and pepper (and maybe any other herb/flavor you want) to the egg-tater mixture.
Wash your hands, then form a handful of sweet potato mixture into balls, then squish and shape them into discs
Once pan and butter is hot, place discs in pan - there will be a pleasant sizzle!
After 4-5 minutes, flip the pancakes over, cook both sides until crisp
Turn off the heat and place some cheese on each pancake, the hot air from the pan will help melt the cheese (Optional)
ENJOY!
The potato was cooked but not mushy, I would say this is a great alternative to a typical morning hash brown.
