Sweet Potato Pancakes

Paula Writes:

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, my sister hosted a family that had been displaced. On Sundays, we got together for brunch. Each of us made a dish and swapped recipes. Not only did we have a great opportunity to help a family in need, we also had a wonderful experience sharing a kitchen and swapping recipes.

I make a version with grated sweet potatoes, 1 egg, and just enough fllour to hold the mixture together. I add salt and a little nutmeg to the mixture and brown on each side until cooked through and crunchy on the outside. If you make these silver dollar sized, you can add a dollop of sour cream and a touch of caviar (we get the inexpensive orange fish roe used for sushi at an oriental market nearby) for a delicious and elegant appetizer! My girls (11 and 18 love these though previously they never would have thought of eating fish eggs!)
