  • 6 oz sweet potato 1 large or 2 medium
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 quart oil for frying


  • Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Set aside a paper towel lined plate.
  • Peel the sweet potato and cut into 1-inch chunks.
  • Add the sweet potato chunks to the boiling water for 15 minutes. Then remove to a medium bowl using a slotted spoon and mash into a puree. Set aside.
  • Mix in the egg. Then mix in the flour, salt, paprika and garlic powder.
  • Add 2-3 inches of oil to a medium saucepan or deep fryer and heat to 375°F. Carefully add several spoonfuls of batter one-by-one to the hot oil, cooking for 3 minutes until crispy. Remove to a plate using a slotted spoon.
  • Repeat for the remaining batter, cooking in batches of 4-6 tots at a time. Garnish with sea salt and serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.



  • Recipe Yield: About 16 tots.
  • Make Ahead: These tots will become soggy in the refrigerator, but they freeze well for up to 3 months in a resealable plastic bag.
