Maple Sweet Potato Cakes with Curried Greek Yogurt

Here are  some yummy griddled cakes with shredded sweet potatoes mixed with just a smidge of maple syrup and some spices for a nice balance of spicy and sweet. And, because Greek yogurt goes with pretty much everything, it is flavored up with some curry powder for dipping. Any leftover potato cakes are great for breakfast or brunch the next day!
