Sweet Potato Fritters

 

Sweet Potato Fritters

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 1/3 c mayo
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp sriracha depends on how spicy you like it!

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Scoop into balls (makes about 6-8) and place on a medium-high grill lightly oiled. Gently squish them into a flat circle and allow to cook 5 mins/side (this will give it a nice crust and soft center).
  • While they cook, mix your mayo, lemon juice and sriracha to create your dipping aioli. Serve hot and enjoy!

    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
