Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium sweet potatoes (about 3 potatoes), pricked with a fork
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cups finely crushed sweet potato chips
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the sweet potatoes directly on the oven rack until tender, about 50 minutes. Let cool completely.

  • Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Peel the sweet potatoes, transfer to a large bowl and mash. Stir in 1 1/2 cups crushed chips, the onion, butter and egg. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste; stir until combined.

  • Spread the remaining 2 1/2 cups crushed chips in a shallow dish. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the sweet potato mixture into your hands and shape into a small 1-inch-long cylinder. Repeat to make about 36 cylinders. Roll in the crushed chips to coat on all sides and arrange on the prepared baking sheet; spray with cooking spray. Bake, rotating the pan halfway through, until crisp and golden, about 30 minutes. Season with salt.

  • Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl. Serve on the side for dipping.
