DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes and pepper jack cheese. Mix well.
  • Using wet hands, form into popper shape, like small footballs about 1.5 inches long. Wet hands often to reduce sticking.
  • Dip poppers into beaten eggs, then roll in panko bread crumbs to coat. Place coated poppers on a large plate.
  • Place poppers into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a deep, heavy pot over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F. Carefully drop poppers into the hot oil. Fry in batches until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Stick a toothpick into each popper and serve hot.
