      These were a nice change of pace from typical potato pancakes and add a touch of specialness to a holiday meal! The onions really offset the sweetness of the potatoes and the thyme adds just the right touch! Really enjoyable! Thanks for sharing.

      Lovely! Three of my favorite things in one delightful pancake! I used sweet onions and fresh thyme and added some salt and pepper to the batter.

      A nutritious and attractive side dish. I used yams instead of sweet potatoes, for more of an african feel, and sweet yellow onions. It would be interesting to know more of the history of this dish - I would have guessed american just by the taste.
