Sweet Potato or Yam Fritters

Yams have a sweeter flavor than Sweet Potatoes so it's your choice which to use.


  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and shredded
  • Ad

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


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.
