Sweet Potato & Corn Pancakes

Like so many of you out there, one of my Resolutions is to lose 5 pounds. And it does not matter whether you have to lose 5 or 50 pounds, it is tough. I love potatoes. So any time I can find a way to make them more figure friendly I go for it!!! Here's one of my favorites. Happy New Year!!!

Sweet potato & corn pancakes.

This is a great way to use up leftovers & with only using egg whites & a small amount of olive oil, they wont break your diet or your wallet!

Two cups Mashed potatoes
1 cup sweet corn
½ cup flour
1 small diced onion 1 egg white
Salt & pepper to taste
Olive oil

Place a small amount of olive oil in a skillet & turn on the heat. Mix all ingredients together & eyeball it. If it looks like it needs a little more flour to make it a nice thick consistency, go ahead & add a little more. This is one of those recipes where you have to judge for yourself.

Take a large wooden spoon & shape potato mixture into patty shapes.
Place in skillet & cook for a few minutes till browned on each side.
Remove from heat & serve.
