sweet potato bites.

I was scouring Pinterest last weekend for some new recipes for our little gender reveal party next weekend. When I found these sweet potato bites I just knew I had to try them. Unfortunately I usually cook at night and have to take photos under the downlights in our kitchen, so please excuse the quality of these pictures. Natural light is just so much better!

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 30 g goat cheese

  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 breadcrumbs
  • salt & pepper

Peel, dice and boil sweet potato until tender... or "mashable".

Combine sweet potato, goat cheese, half of your parmesan cheese, butter, milk, half of the rosemary and salt & pepper.

Mash! Once completely combined, place mixture in the fridge to cool and preheat your oven to 220 degrees celsius.

While your potato-cheese mixture is cooling, mix together the remaining parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and salt & pepper in a shallow bowl. In a smaller bowl, beat the eggs and set aside.

Once your potatoes are cooled, roll into small balls, coat with egg and roll in the breadcrumb-cheese mixture. Place on a baking tray and lightly spray the tops with cooking oil.

Cook for 15-20 minutes. Turn the oven to grill (broil in the states) and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the tops are nice and golden brown.

Garnish with some spring onion and dip in light sour cream- Yum-O!!

Since this was just a test batch, I only cooked about half of the bites and froze the other half to cook later. They made for a good side dish with our dinner but would be perfect finger food at a party.

I was actually really happy with the way they turned out and am excited to make them again for our upcoming party :)
