Ingredients
  • Canola oil
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 1 cup)
  • 4 tablespoons melted salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives (reserve 1 tablespoon for sour cream topping)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or thawed frozen corn
  • 1 cup sour cream
Directions

In a shallow pan, heat oil to 350 degrees F.

Score sweet potato with a fork and microwave on high for 6 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool. Cut sweet potato in half, scoop out the flesh, and place it into a mixing bowl with the butter. Mash well. Add egg, bread crumbs, flour, salt, and pepper and mix well. Add the chives and corn and mix gently. Using 2 spoons to shape, scoop mounds into hot oil, cooking on both sides, in batches, until golden brown. With a slotted spoon or spider, remove fritters from oil and place on paper towel to dry. Mix sour cream, reserved chives, salt and pepper, to taste, and place a small dollop on each fritter when ready to serve.
