Aimee Fortney's Easy Sweet Potato Fritters

Posted: Updated:

Michael came up with this delicious idea and we tweaked it to perfect it together.

  • 2 sweet potatoes, cooked
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (or you can use grits, for a gluten free option)
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced

Mash the cooked sweet potatoes in a bowl with a fork. Mix with curry, onion powder and chili powder. (Michael used crushed red pepper flakes; I opted for a smokier flavor). Place the breadcrumbs (or grits) in a shallow bowl or plate. Heat olive oil in a pan; form sweet potato mixture into small balls then dredge, lightly in breadcrumbs. Cook for a couple of minutes on both sides until crispy, then place on your plate. Deglaze the pan with lemon juice and honey, then pour over the top of your sweet potatoes.
