Originally posted in 2014 as these Bacon Sweet Potato Hash Cakes means again when this weblog was solely simply born, these Mashed Sweet Potato Cakes have been so beloved again then! The solely distinction with these is all of the CHEESE! Serve them with poached eggs, bacon, or simply on their very own, they’re so versatile, the entire household loves them!
I imply….the cheese pull proper right here is simply good!
The solely recommendation I’ve with these is be mild. Mashed candy potato desserts are typically much more delicate than regular mashed potato muffins. When flipping them, achieve this gently or they could break aside on you. Also, I all the time make these with breadcrumbs. The occasions I’ve tried these with flour, they arrive out gooey within the centre. Very very delicate and virtually like a cake batter.
I additionally choose to fry them on a nonstick pan, because the cheese tends to expire of them and stick in a daily pan.
Serve them with bitter cream, chives, extra inexperienced onions, bacon on the aspect, or a dripping poached egg. YUUUHM.

TO MAKE MASHED SWEET POTATOES:
OVEN BAKED: Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Wash, peel and reduce candy potatoes into quarters or 6 items, relying on how giant they’re (we do ours in 6 items).

(Baking time will rely upon how giant they’ve been minimize.) Transfer cooked candy potatoes to a mixing bowl and mash properly with a potato masher.

Wash, peel and minimize candy potatoes into quarters or 6 items, relying on measurement, and add them to the pot. Cook till simply pierced with a fork. Drain; switch to a mixing bowl and mash nicely with a potato masher.
TO MAKE THE SWEET POTATO CAKES:
To the mashed candy potatoes within the bowl, add the mozzarella, parmesan, inexperienced onions, half cup of bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and egg. Season with salt and pepper, and mash all components collectively properly with a potato masher to mix.
Place remaining 1/four cup of breadcrumbs onto a plate. Scoop 1 tablespoon of combination into the palm of your arms and type into spherical patties about 1/2-inch thick. Dredge patties within the bread crumbs, evenly masking each side, and put aside till able to prepare dinner.

Add extra oil in between batches if wanted.
Do not substitute breadcrumbs with flour. We tried this they usually have been tremendous gooey within the centre. The breadcrumbs take in a number of the moisture of the candy potatoes, and set higher. They will nonetheless be softer than potato desserts, however not gooey.
