Weston Drum Shredder

1. Caramelize Onions

Use the Kitchen Kit, with the chopper blade, to chop the onion. Sauté in a skillet with soy sauce and brown sugar over medium high heat for 3-5 minutes, until onions are translucent. Set aside.

2. Shred Potatoes

Peel sweet potatoes and slice into pieces that fit into the Shredder's hopper. Use your Drum Shredder (coarse grater drum) to shred the sweet potato.

3. Assemble Potato Pancakes

Whisk together the eggs.

In a large mixing bowl, gently mix together the shredded potatoes, onions, egg, flour, thyme, and brown sugar with a wooden spoon.

4. Fry Potato Pancakes

Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Place a large scoop of the pancake mixture into the center of the skillet. Use a flat spatula to flatten the pancake. Sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Allow to fry on each side 3-5 minutes, until browned. It's normal for the edges to look a little dark. Repeat for remaining pancakes.

Serve hot, with horseradish sauce.
