1 medium to large sweet potato, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp paprika
1 egg, beaten
salt and pepper
1 tbsp flour
3 tbsp olive oil
In a large bowl, combine the sweet potato, paprika, and egg. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and mix well. Form into equally-sized patties and set aside.
Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and heat until the surface of the oil is shimmering. Gently add the patties, and flatten slightly in the pan. Cook until crisp and golden on both sides. Transfer to a plate and repeat until all the potatoes are cooked.
