Prep Time:
Bake: 30 Minutes
Cool: 5 Minutes


  • 4 medium-size sweet potatoes (about 2 lb.), peeled
  • 1 medium onion, peeled
  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/3 cup unsalted matzo meal


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Grate sweet potato, onion, and carrot through large holes of a box grater; toss with lemon juice. Spread mixture onto layers of paper towels or a cloth towel. Roll up towel, starting at 1 short side. Squeeze towel to absorb excess liquid. Place sweet potato mixture in a large bowl.
  2. 2. Brush olive oil on bottom and up sides of a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Heat pan in 425° oven 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Place matzo meal in a fine wire-mesh strainer. Rinse matzo meal under running water, shaking strainer gently until mixture forms a ball. Whisk into egg mixture.
  4. 4. Stir egg mixture into sweet potato mixture until well combined. Carefully spoon sweet potato mixture into hot jelly-roll pan. Press mixture in an even layer, using a spatula.
  5. 5. Bake at 425° for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven to wire rack, and let cool 5 minutes. Cut into pieces before serving.
