Sweet Potato Croquettes from Elise:
Our Turkey Day table was never complete without these little guys. They’re simple and fun even for the kids to join in the kitchen. I can remember making these with my mom for many holiday occasions and church dinners since I was a kid. There are a lot of memories attached to this recipe that has become a staple for our holiday table. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
Sweet Potato Croquettes are quick and easy to whip up. Toss these ingredients into your shopping cart:
1 box corn flakes cereal
1 40 oz can yams or same amount in fresh boiled sweet potatoes
1 bag mini marshmallows
Cinnamon or Allspice
When you get home preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Next you can get rid of all your holiday stress by crushing the corn flakes, don’t make them too fine though you want some nice bits.
Now put the yams in a bowl mash and mix with cinnamon or allspice to taste. Once thoroughly mixed roll yams into ping pong or golf ball size balls with a marshmallow or two in the center.
Next just roll the yam balls in the crushed corn flakes until coated and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Once all rolled pop your croquettes into the oven for 10-15 minutes or until done.
Serving size 2 croquettes, though we usually go for 3 or 4. Hey, it’s Thanksgiving after all! :o)
