Sweet Potato Fritters


  • 2 sweet potatoes, cooked (you can steam, boil or bbq, whatever you prefer!)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp dried (or fresh if you have) parsley
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 c corn meal
  • 1/4 c bread crumbs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • Sriracha Aioli
  • 1/3c mayo
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1-2tbsp sriracha (depends on how spicy you like it!)


  1. Allow your sweet potatoes to cool to a temperature you can work with, we used ones that were cooked a few days in advance! Remove the skin and mash in a bowl. In a small bowl beat your egg until the yolk breaks, add to the potatoes.
  2. Add in additional ingredients for the patties and mix well. If they are too dry you can add in some olive oil (no more than 1 tsp) to combine.
  3. Preheat pan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil or butter. Drop by spoonfuls and gently press down to create patty. Allow to cook 3-4 mins per side until lightly golden!

    My son and I love sweet potato! I never even thought of making them into a fritter – what a great idea! We have a egg allergy, so I would have to figure out another binder – sour cream maybe? Thanks for posting!

      You are so welcome Carolyn!!! I think you could easily use sour cream or plain greek yogurt (and just up the cornmeal a bit) and you would have a similar result!! Enjoy <3
