Sugared Sweet Potato Patties

"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.


<p>Hi, I'm Val. And yes, I am happy :) I live in one of the beautiful suburbs of Houston but I am from Southern Louisiana, Cajun Country. Although I truly enjoy cajun food, I also enjoy other cultural foods. I love to try different recipes, that's why I love recipezaar. My family and I enjoy dining at Thai, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Mexican, Lebanese, Vietnamese and Indian restauraunts. I also enjoy coming home and finding recipes of our favorite dishes we try at the restauraunts. <br /> <br />I have a terrific husband of 22 years, and 2 wonderful children- a 21 year old son and an 20 year old daughter. They are the loves of my life. Oh, I can't forget the other 3 precious members of the family- our 3 mini schnauzers, Ollie,Emmie and Charlie. They keep us all laughing. We are huge animal lovers. <br /> <br />I am a stay-at-home mom so I can log on to recipezaar in the morning and try to decide what I can cook for dinner. We all enjoy trying different recipes I find here. I'll keep searching for recipes so everyone keep on posting. (I try to post recipes when I can.) <br /> <br />Have a great day!!!!!</p>
