Though the picture is of candied yams, the real magic is what you do with the leftovers since this dish doesn't present well the next day. I made potato pancakes from my mashed potatoes and sweet potato pancakes from the candied yams.
Take your candied or leftover sweet potato/yam casserole, candied or not, add one large egg and enough of the flour to thicken to a bit thicker pancake consistency.
Use hand mixer and combine it all together.
Using non stick pan , medium high, and some canola oil, drop about 1/4 cup full of the "batter" into the heated pan (I use small ice cream scoop), and cook like pancakes but be careful not to let it burn. I experiment with the heat. When the edges start to brown and look a bit crispy, flip them over and cook until done.
4. 1/2 Cup of cream cheese softened and warmed sprinkled with cinnamon to dollop on top.
My family loved this recipe more than regular potato pancakes!
