Sweet Potato Tots Loaded with Bacon Bits

It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and I was craving for something to eat. I checked in my fridge and found a large sweet potato. Instead of simply frying it, I tried to be creative and did a little twist in my simple lazy snack ;)

Sweet Potato Tots or some called it croquettes, can be mixed with other ingredients to burst with more flavor. Adding-up some available ingredients could really make a big difference to a simple dish. So, go check your kitchen now and be creative in making something new out of ordinary.


  • 1 large sweet potato - grated
  • black ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup + 1/2 cup for coating - breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cooked bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese - grated
  • oil  


  1. Peel and wash the sweet potato.
  2. Grate the sweet potato.
  3. Microwave the grated sweet potato for a minute and let in cool. Squeeze it by batch to remove liquid.
  4. Season with black ground pepper.
  5. Add 1/4 cup breadcrumbs.
  6. Add bacon bits.
  7. Add Parmesan cheese.
  8. Add 2 eggs.
  9. Mix it all together.
  10. Form the mixture in to a golf ball size mold.
  11. Roll in to the breadcrumbs.
  12. Do the same until you finish all the mixture.
  13. Heat oil in a pan with low heat. Put the tots in the pan.
  14. Let it fry for 5 minutes each side or until golden brown.
  15. Serve and enjoy! (Ketchup or Mayonnaise for dipping sauce)
