SidesWhitney Carlson12 Comments

I have been dreaming of sweet potato tots for a while now. Remember your mother making you regular potato tots as a child? Oh the memories that holds for me! Now, you can continue those memories but in a healthy, slow-burning carbohydrate sorta-way. The perfect (and somewhat portable) side dish to your lunchtime or dinnertime meal. These will be perfect for your Fourth of July BBQ!

He & She Tip: These will NOT be as crunchy as traditional potato tots since those are fried. Keeping the skin on in this recipe will increase the texture of the tots.
