A platter of crispy sweet potato pancakes is always welcome for holiday entertaining. This healthy pancake recipe is our twist on the spuds, making great use of sweet potatoes as a tasty alternative. We especially love this recipe as the weather starts to get chilly, but don't be afraid to make these tasty bites any time of the year!
What You'll Need:
- 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Vegetable oil for frying
What To Do:
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except oil; mix well. Form into 8 pancakes.
- In a large deep skillet, heat about 1/4 inch of oil over medium-high heat. Place half the pancakes in the oil, without crowding skillet, and fry 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden. (If you like them crisper, fry until they're flecked with brown.) Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Repeat with remaining pancakes, and serve hot.
- For an extra-special treat, serve these sweet potato pancakes drizzled with maple syrup. And if you're looking for more of our great sweet potato recipes, check out our free collection of 8 Sweet Potato Casseroles and Other Sweet Potato Recipes.
- Our test kitchen finds shredding in a food processor is the easiest way -- you can even shred the onion at the same time.
