1 pound sweet potatoes; peeled and coarsely shredded
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, coarsely shredded
Vegetable oil for frying

Spread potatoes and onion on clean dish towel. Roll up, twisting towel to extract excess moisture from vegetables.

In bowl, whisk eggs, flour 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until smooth.

Drain on paper towels and keep warm while frying remaining fritters, adding more oil if necessary.
