Sweet Potato

Mmmm fall is officially here! and you know what that means….pumpkin & sweet potato flavored everything is IN! My friend posted the most amazing sweet potato ball recipe, so of course I tried it, and now I have to share it with you all! There are no strict measurements so just eyeball everything, it will turn out great I promise!

Puppy loved eating the sweet potato balls before they were rolled in bread crumbs.

Sweet Potato Balls


  • 6 peeled sweet potatoes
  • GF bread crumbs
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2TBSP brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. Steam or boil the peeled sweet potatoes until soft. I think mine took about 15 minutes
  3. Mash potatoes with a fork until you get a puree like texture
  4. Roll into balls then roll in bread crumbs. My GF bread crumbs are basically just plain cornmeal so I added  some spices like garlic, minced onion, paprika, nutmeg, salt, and pepper for flavor.
  5. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes
  6. Top with butter and sprinkle on a little bit of brown sugar
