Sugared Sweet Potato Patties

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by HappyVal

Here is a quick and delicious side dish to enjoy with numerous main dishes. My kids love these as is, but for anyone who has to have a marshmallow topping, just add a few mini ones on top of the patties after you remove them from the pan. Enjoy.

This was a nice change from regular baked sweet potatoes. We don't have these frozen in patties out here so I had to make my own by just boiling some peeled potatoes and then mashing them and forming into patties. I had trouble getting them to hold together so next time I would add an egg white or two for binding. I pan fried them in the butter and added the brown sugar and cinnamon. We liked them, but I found them kinda sweet for a side dish. I would have prefered to leave off the sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a nonstick skillet melt butter on medium heat.
  2. Add patties and sprinkle tops with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. When patties start to sizzle turn them over and sprinkle other side.
  4. Let patties cook on each side until a nice crispy crust forms (usually 2-3 minutes on each side).
