What's cooking Wednesday

Another vegetarian feast for What's Cooking Wednesday. John declared it a "home run." Can't be bad if there is sour cream and apple sauce on the side!

Sweet Potato Pancakes

4 cups (packed) coarsely grated sweet potatoes (about 2) - if you have a food processor, definitely pull it out
1/2 cup grated onion
3 to 4 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
black pepper, to taste
4 beaten eggs
1/3 cup flour
oil for frying (just a bit though)

1. Combine all ingredients (except oil) and mix well.

2. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet until it is very hot.

3. Use a non-slotted spoon to form thin pancakes, patting the batter down. Fry on both sides until brown, adding small amounts of additional oil, if/as needed.

4. Serve hot with sour cream and apple sauce.

I served it with a cucumber salad (also very good) and corn. John has been craving corn for 3 days so he finally got it. Odd, I know.

And, look who's sitting up all by her lonesome:

No precooking the sweet potatoes? I'm suprised! Looks yummy though -- I love sweet potatoes, so maybe this w/e.
