ingredients

  • 1 12 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 (24 ounce) bag Simply Potatoes Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 lb tail-on medium raw shrimp
  • 1 (12 ounce) package andouille sausages
  • 2 medium green tomatoes or 2 medium tomatillos, if green tomatoes are not available

directions

  • Heat non-stick sautee pan over medium heat. Cut andouille sausage on the bias. When the pan is hot, add sausage and cook until edges are golden brown (about 4-5 minutes). Set aside.
  • Slice green tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. In the same pan, turn up the heat to medium-high and heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter making sure to scrape all the brown bits left by the andouille sausage. When butter is foaming, add tomato slices and sautee 2 minutes per side. Tomatoes should have nice browning on both sides. Set aside.
  • Open Simply Potatoes Mashed Sweet Potatoes and divide potatoes into 6 round balls (more or less if you are doing small appetizers or larger entree with this recipe). Using your hands, form flat patties with sweet potatoes (each should be about 1/2 inch thick). Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add sweet potato cakes. Cook approximately 4-5 minutes per side flipping once.
  • Heat last 1/2 tablespoon of butter in sautee pan over medium heat and cook shrimp until shrimp turns pink (about 2-3 minutes) flipping shrimp to cook both sides.
  • Plate the dish by placing one sweet potato cake on plate, top with one slice sauteed green tomato, followed by andouille sausage slices, and finish with a few sauteed shrimp. Serve immediately.

    I was a bit of a skeptic - not a big fan of sweet potatoes. But no joke, this is truly one of the best recipes we have tried yet. I was sold when I saw both shrimp and sausage included. It was amazing - yum!

    It's not everyday that my family will eat sweet potatoes; but this recipe definitely changed their mind. It was delicious and very easy to make. I think this makes for a delicous and healthy hearty snack or side dish. Loved it!

    This recipe provided an interesting blend of flavors that i never would have thought of myself, but it turned out really well. Love the use of the mashed sweet potatoes as we keep hearing how healthy sweet potatoes are these days, not to mention they are incredibly tasty. But combined with the shrimp, tomatoes and sausage this recipe is a real winner!!!

    I never would have thought to put all these ingredients together, but it just works! It's a southern spin on eggs benedict (on of my faves). I love the mashed sweet potato cakes because they are yummy and gluten free! Best of all it is EASY to make.
