Sweet Potato cakes

The younger brother likes to cook and he’s quite good at it.  For Thanksgiving he made the turkey, smoked a ham, made a sweet potato gratin and had left over cooked sweet potatoes.  He lamented a short while and came up with a sweet potato cake that everyone kept asking if it was a crab cake.  Here is his healthy low fat recipe.

Not a Crab Cake (Sweet potato cake)
·         3 sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
·         ½ stick of butter or low fat margarine
·         ½ cup low fat milk
·         2 eggs, beaten
·         ½ diced jalapeno, without seeds
·         ½ small onion, finely diced
·         ½ teaspoon nutmeg
Mix all together and form small cakes (about a ¼ cup).  Bake 350 F 8-12 minutes.


  1. YUM! I love crab cakes and this sounds really good. Great healthy substitute!

  2. They look yummy and being a lover of both crab cakes and anything sweet potato -- I would try them!


Gosh, I really love it when you leave comments...It feels all warm and fuzzy. :)
