I found this recipe in a very old cookbook my mom gave me. It was her first cookbook she had when she got married in 1953.
- 1 cup cooked ham
- 2 cups mashed sweet potato
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Combine ham and potatoes and egg.
- Sift flour, baking powder and salt.
- Add to ham mixture.
- Drop by tbsp onto hot griddle and brown on each side.
I am not going to rate this b/c I added an ingredient. I wanted to leave a comment or two though. I added some brown sugar b/c we like sweet potatoes with it. The flavor of these was great. Delicious. However, they did not stay together very well. I had a heck of a time trying to flip them. They just mushed all apart. I don't know if it was the brown sugar or something else, but they just didn't hold their shape for me. I even tried baking them instead of frying them to see if that would help. It didn't. I would make these again b/c they were yummy but I would not try to fry them. I would probably make it into a casserole instead. If you can figure out what my problem with this was, please let me know. They are very tasty. :-)
