- 2-3 large sweet potatoes, peeled
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- vegetable oil, for frying
- In a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed skillet, heat 1/8-inch vegetable oil over medium high heat until shimmering (but not smoking). Note: oil should sizzle when you drop a few shreds of sweet potato in.
- Using a cheese grater, coarsely grate sweet potato and place in a large bowl.
- Pour lightly beaten eggs into shredded sweet potato and stir together.
- Add parmesan cheese, brown sugar and onion powder, and season everything liberally with salt and pepper.
- Mix until everything is incorporated and sweet potato is thoroughly coated.
- Working in large spoonfuls, drop sweet potato mixture in large clumps into the hot oil. Using the back of a spatula, pat sweet potato rounds down into a flat disc.
- Cook undisturbed for 2-3 minute, or until golden brown. Flip and cook other side until golden.
- Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and serve immediately. Serves 4-6
Recipe adapted from The Pancake Princess
- 1 large sweet potato, (about 640 g), cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
- 1 tsp (5 mL) liquid honey
- Pinch each salt and pepper
- 4 cups (1 L) baby spinach
Toss sweet potato with 1 tbsp of the oil; spread on lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 400F (200C) oven, turning occasionally, until tender and golden, about 20 minutes.
In bowl, whisk together remaining oil, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper. Stir in sweet potato and spinach.
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise and cut each half into 3 long spears. Place them on a sheet pan and toss with the olive oil. Spread the potatoes in one layer. Combine the brown sugar, salt, and pepper and sprinkle on the potatoes. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn with a spatula. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
