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.
Place one layer of sweet potatoes or yams in a large shallow baking dish. Spoon a small amount of the cranberry mixture over the sweet potatoes or yams and spoon some of the butter mixture over the cranberry mixture.
Continue the same layering process so that even the last layer is topped with the two mixtures.
Bake covered for 20 minutes and then bake an additional 5 minutes uncovered.

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.) I like mine with a little butter, DH likes them plain, and DD likes to cut them in half length wise, sprinkle with brown sugar, add a few marshmallows and broil. A nice plus with this is you can fit them along side all the other dishes in the oven or do them early in the day and microwave them before serving (just like a potato.)
It's healthy and nutritious and tasty,can be served with rice, bread or naan.
These are great for a holiday get together or any time. I prefer to use the dark Karo syrup over the light, but either one can be used. Very sweet and good!
Yummy every day or holiday dish. Cook yams in water to cover in saucepan until almost tender. Peel and slice. Drain and slice chestnuts. Peel, core and slice apples.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place drained yams in ungreased 1 1/2 qt. baking dish. In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; blend well. Sprinkle over yams.
Peel and cook yams until tender. In a saucepan, combine rest of ingredients. Bring just to a boil. Pour over yams in a baking dish. Bake 30 minutes at 325 degrees F.
Boil yams until tender. Peel and mash or beat with electric blender. Stir in melted butter, sugar, nutmeg, lemon peel and egg yolks. Cool slightly and fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth.
Peel sweet potatoes, boil and mash. Add hot milk, sugar, and 3 Tbsp. butter. Then add black walnuts and a pinch of salt. . .
Brown pork chops in butter over medium heat. Place pork chops in 13x9 baking pan. Combine yams, pineapple, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt; mix well.

A lot of people will toss sweet potatoes when they show signs of drying. They do not make good baked potatoes. They are good for whatever requires grated sweet potatoes. Baked potatoes are good for making pies, but for a baked sweet potato casserole, grated are best. Raw sweet potatoes are an excellent source of quick energy. Grated and used as you would carrots (in a salad, etc.) will give you a little energy boost.
I just discovered something you might like. I reached into a drawer to get a knife to peel a sweet potato. I spotted a cheese slicer and decided to give it a try.
The cheese slicer actually works better than a knife. I find you have more control and you can work faster. As you can see, the potato was getting a little dry. I'm assuming the slicer would peel a new sweet potato just as well.
Smoothies made with sweet potatoes are the quickest to provide extra energy. They are low calorie (if properly prepared) and very filling. They are somewhat like a powdery milkshake and can be a delicious diet food, depending on what other raw, low calorie fruit or vegetable you add to the blender along with milk, fruit juice, etc.
I like to experiment. I have even added raw oat meal to the mix. It's good. I eat raw oatmeal as a cold cereal, anyway. Much better than cooked. Also, I try to get a few greens in the mix. While cabbage won't do, a few leaves of fresh spinach works great. And I usually add a small bit of sucralose for sweetness.
Think blueberries, strawberries, almonds and other nuts, carrots and carrot greens, apples and pears. Sweet potatoes are just the base for the smoothie. And taste wise, I find milk works better than juices. But, you can always add both. A dollop of ice cream is good. I'm getting hungry.
Open a can of Bruce's Yams into a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish. Add margarine, brown sugar and or maple syrup, then top with small marshmallows. Bake in 325 degree F oven for 30 minutes.
