There’s a German restaurant up the street from my house that has the best sweet potato tots. I go there all the time just to order the tots, but for some reason it never occurred to me before to learn how to make my own. I thought it was going to be difficult, but I just whipped up my first batch today, and it was super easy! Surprisingly, you only need 4 ingredients and a few spices.

The restaurant serves them with a spicy aioli sauce, but personally I love a good homemade honey mustard dip with my sweet potatoes. Normally, homemade honey mustard requires a creamy sauce like Vegenaise, but since I didn’t have any in my kitchen today, I just used dijon mustard, honey, and a tiny bit of coconut oil, almond milk and flour. I have to say, it was really good!

I think I just discovered a new favorite homemade snack!

Recipe type: Appetizer
Ingredients
  • For sweet potato tots:
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Sea salt, pepper and garlic powder for seasoning
  • Optional: Dash of cayenne pepper
  • For honey mustard dip:
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp milk of choice
  • 1 tsp flour
  • Dash of sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Slice sweet potato into chunks.
  3. Place sweet potato chunks in a blender or food processor and blend until potato is finely chopped into small pieces.
  4. Heat 1 tsp coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat, then add the sweet potato pieces.
  5. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until potato pieces are soft.
  6. Transfer sweet potato to a large bowl and stir together with the egg, breadcrumbs, cheese and seasonings until thoroughly combined.
  7. Roll the sweet potato mixture into small rectangular pieces with your hands. (Mixture should make about 10-12 large tots.)
  8. Evenly space the tots on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes, then flip each tot and bake for an additional 5 minutes until each side is brown and crisp. (Be careful because the bottoms burn quickly.)
  9. For honey mustard dip: Mix all dip ingredients together in a small bowl and serve alongside tots.
