Sweet Potato Fritters

2 large sweet potatoes, grated

1 small onion, grated

4 eggs, beaten

1 Tbsp Salt

olive oil or cocnut oil

black pepper

Fill a large bowl with water and add the salt.  Soak the sweet potatoes in the water for 10 minutes.  Drain the potatoes and lay on a baking sheet lined with towels and pat dry.  Squeeze the liquid out of the onions and add them to the potatoes.  Add the eggs and pepper and combine.

Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, and spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture per patty into the hot oil. Flatten the patties with a fork, and fry until golden brown and crisp on the bottom, 5 to 8 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side, sprinkle with salt, then set the cooked patties aside on the prepared baking sheet in the preheated oven while you finish cooking the latkes. Stir the potato mixture before cooking each batch of patties.

Serve hot with applesauce.
