Who can’t resist a bit of fried food now and then?  A big weakness of mine was hash browns (nom nom!), but with a new healthy way of living, these guys had to go.  Now while I don’t regularly eat these sweet potato patties, they are a healthier alternative to potato patties or hash browns.  Sweet potatoes are more nutrient dense than regular potatoes and these are pan-fried and not deep fried.  Not exactly guilt free (it’s still fried), but certainly less guilt!

Sweet Potato Hash Brown Patties

Ingredients

1 Cups Coarsely Grated Sweet Potatoes

1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs

1-2 Eggs

1/4 Cup Finely Diced Onions

Sunflower Oil

Salt & Pepper

Instructions

Peel and grate your sweet potatoes.  Lightly salt and let stand for 10 minutes while you finely dice 1/4 cup of onions.  Drain excess water from the sweet potatoes and pat them dry.  Add the onions, breadcrumbs, eggs and salt & pepper to the sweet potato shreds and stir.  If you find there is still water, pat dry again or press and drain.  Your mixture should be about the consistency of a hamburger – and should stand firm when made into a patty.  Too wet?  Add some breadcrumbs.  Too dry?  Maybe another egg.

Shape all of the patties and put them aside.  Add the oil to a frying pan and heat.  When the oil is hot, start cooking!  Since these are healthier versions, they are NOT deep fried.  Simply fry on each side until
