While staring at the 1/2 full dish of brown sugar buttered pecan sweet potatoes yesterday all I could think was “pancakes”.  It was that or a sad slow death in the fridge as my family’s desire to eat leftovers was quickly dwindling.  I cooked for 15 people, we had a fraction of that actually at our little Thanksgiving this year so leftovers were literally spilling out of the fridge and I had to make our deck into a walk in cooler.  So by just adding some flour, oats, milk and some eggs I turned leftover sweet potatoes into delicious pancakes with crunchy pecans inside!
