Feta and sweet potato pancakes recipe
Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes and cook them in boiling water.
Let them cool and then mash them, add the egg, grated Parmesan, chopped feta, fresh thyme leaves and nutmeg.
Mix well and add salt and pepper.
Shape into meatballs, roll into breadcrumbs and mash them lightly.
Place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, season with a little oil and cook at 200 ° for about 25 minutes, until they become golden brown.

You can accompany these pancakes with one fresh and light sauce, from the acid aftertaste that contrasts the fat part of the recipe.
The basis of yogurt It is ideal. Mix it with ingredients that make it fragrant and tasty like mint, chopped garlic and lemon zest. The alternatives could be one very delicate mustard or the sour cream.
You can also prepare the same recipe with other types of potatoes and you can enrich it with other cheeses if you don't love feta. Try the ricotta salata, or even with something as delicate as the caprine.
To make the pancakes richer and more colorful we suggest you add of zucchini or peas, raw or simply blanched.
Fried or baked
We have proposed the baking in the oven, more practical and light, but if you don't feel like turning it on because of the already very high temperatures, try the fried version, even more delicious.
Add a little flour to the dough to make it more compact during frying and fold the pancakes with flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs to make them crispy and heat resistant.
Sweet potato pancakes!
If you have already lit the oven or you have boiling oil on the stove, you just need to prepare the sweet version of these pancakes with American potatoes. Replace the feta with a good one ricotta cheese, add two tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of yeast and two tablespoons of flour. If you like it, put in some raisin.
Fry the pancakes and sprinkle them with icing sugar.
