Turn a bowl full of winter root veggies into crispy fritters to enjoy any time of day. Have your little chef help peel and grate the veggies, either by hand, with a box grater, or using a food processor. Crack the eggs together, then mix in a couple more ingredients and you are ready to cook. Top the veggie pancakes with a little Greek yogurt, sour cream, or even applesauce. If you have a French fry fan or potato lover, these are sure to be a hit!
