Yield 12 servings 1x


  • 3 cups shredded sweet potatoes (~1 large)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1/3 cup flour (any kind…we used white whole wheat)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced purple onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil, for drizzling


  1. First, preheat oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel a large sweet potato and then use a cheese grater to grate sweet potato in order to form a hash. If you have multiple grate sizes on your grater, you’ll want to use the largest one.
  3. Place 3 cups of grated sweet potatoes plus all other ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Don’t be afraid to get messy and use your hands.
  4. Once everything is mixed. Use a 1/4 cup scoop to scoop mixture into palms. Press together, squeezing out as much air as possible to create a patty. Place patties on lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Bake at 400ºF for around 30 minutes or until the tops of the fritters have firmed up and begin to turn golden brown.
