Thanksgiving meals aren't really about fried food -- they're more of a showcase for roasted, baked, and simmered side dishes -- but these garnet yam and chard fritters don't have to end up on your plate dripping with oil.

If you skillet fry them in just a little oil you'll still get the health benefits of the vitamins and minerals in both the yams and the greens, while the unexpected reinterpretation of a typical Thanksgiving ingredient -- the yam -- is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
