Yams have a sweeter flavor than Sweet Potatoes so it's your choice which to use.
After shredding the sweet potatoes squeeze out the excess moisture and place in a large bowl. Add eggs, green onions, flour and salt and mix well.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Spoon heaping tablespoonfuls of the mixture in to the skillet and flatten with a spatula.
Cook until golden, about 4 minutes, turn and cook until golden on other side. Remove and drain on clean cloth towel or paper towel and repeat the same with remaining batter.

Here's a nice sweet potato or yam variation for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix cranberry sauce and juices in a bowl. Mix corn syrup and melted butter in another bowl.
For a little twist on an old favorite we bake our yams like potatoes. Be sure to either wrap them in foil or put them on a baking pan because the juices will drip and caramelize on your oven (not a fun mess to clean.)
