  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Optional

  • 1 egg, beaten*

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Use the second smallest grate size on your cheese grater and grate sweet potatoes. Place shredded sweet potatoes in a bowl and mix with a pinch of salt and let sit for 10-15 minutes to draw out moisture.
  3. Next, place sweet potato in two layers of paper towel and squeeze the moisture out of the sweet potato over a sink. Squeeze as much moisture out as possible.
  4. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix sweet potato with the rest of the ingredients (except olive oil). Mix well.
  5. Use a teaspoon to scoop out a heaping scoop of sweet potato mixture. Form a tater tot with your fingers and place on a greased pan. Repeat until the sweet potato mixture is gone. Sprinkle tater tot with olive oil.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes then flip. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
