Sweet Potato and Feta Patties



I made these a while ago and loved them. I am not a huge fan of sweet potatoes unless they are in the for of french fries so I did not h ave high hopes for these. However, I loved them and preferred them over french fries. Now it could be because I recently fell head over heals in love with feta and well you could put feta on a chocolate bar and I would eat it. I know, I know gross but I am just expressing my love for this salty crumbly cheese. I thought that this was an easy dish to make and it went well with the steak that I had made that night for dinner. The only thing I was not a fan of was standing in the kitchen grating the potatoes. It is times like that when I wish I had one of those large food processors with the grater attachments on the top.

  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. margarine, melted
  • 1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 4 Tbsp. sour cream, (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix grated sweet potato with the egg, flour, margarine and feta until well combined. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spoon large tablespoons of the mixture into patties, flattening slightly and cook on both sides until golden brown.
  4. Slide the patties onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes or until crisp.
  5. Serve warm. Garnish with sour cream and parsley.

Interesting how I am just the opposite. I love sweet potatoes in everything but feta I don't like. At least, I don't THINK I like it. I recently was at a party and was eating a fantastic dip that I couldn't get enough of, only to find out that it was a red pepper and feta spread. Hmmmm... So maybe I DO like feta IN certain things. I had it once plain and didn't like it at all. That being said, this sounds like something I might like to try. Thanks!
