Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato 

  • 2 eggs

  • choice of oil or butter for cooking

Instructions:

1.      Roast sweet potato for about an hour at 400 degrees F. Or, peel and dice the sweet potato and place in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with about 2 inches of water. Cook in the microwave until soft, about 5-6 minutes. Let cool slightly. Drain and mash lightly with the back of a spoon

2.     Spoon out 1/2 cup of the mashed sweet potato

4.     Heat oil or butter over medium-low heat (I prefer Coconut oil)
