Sweet Potato ‘Cakes’


It’s a glorious thing when a epic fail in the kitchen turns in to a delicious breakfast. 

I set out to make the most tasty fall sweet potato cakes to serve for breakfast.  That didn’t turn out as planned, but sometimes failure is a great success.  I’ve made some changes, to make this a savory sweet potato hash browns.
