  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 pounds medium sweet potato, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil
  • Optional: Minced chives, sour cream and applesauce


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients. Stir in eggs until blended. Add potatoes; toss to coat.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into oil; press lightly to flatten. Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. Drain on paper towels. If desired, top with minced chives and serve with sour cream and applesauce.
