This was the result of another failed attempt at making sweet potato chips. One day I shall figure it out, but during this time, I didn't have the patience. I kept burning small batches and I finally gave up. I still had a pile of thinly sliced pieces of sweet potato. So I chopped them into sizable pieces and piled them all in a bowl. Mixed in an egg, some flour and some green onion. and baked them in the oven. Yummy deliciousness of a nearly wasted veggie.
Makes 6-8 cakes
Sweet Potato Cakes
2 small sweet potatoes - peeled

Thinly slice the sweet potatoes, then give them a rough chop. Place the pieces in a large bowl. Add the egg, flour and green onion and mix together thoroughly. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Place large spoonfuls of the mixture into 6-8 bundles on a foil lined lightly greased baking pan. Baked for 25-30 minutes.
