We had these with homemade wingers chicken. Recipe from Food Network.
2 sweet potatoes
2 T flour
2 slices of bacon minced (optional) or
Not! Yummy!! Out of this world!
Bring a pot of water to boil. Boil the sweet potatoes skins and all whole for 15 minutes.
Remove, let cool, peel, and grate over some paper towels. Cover with more paper towels and lightly dab the potatoes. Remove all excess moisture. If they're too moist they won't form a tot.
Stir in the bacon bits.
Add s&p and flour. Lightly toss all together.
Scoop into a ball and roll into a tot shape.
Fry in a skillet with hot oil until crispy. Couple minutes each side.
