Sweet Potato Cakes

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by aznika

Sounded great, so I tried to make this. The mashed potatoes mixture turned out really gooey and frying goo was a challenge. I ended up making the mixture into mashed sweet potatoes by adding some panko, milk, and a little butter. The flavor was still great, I just wish the consistency of the mix was either a lot thinner (pancakey) or thicker (crab cakey)... I will just have to experiment when I try this again. Thank you for the idea!
