These are inspired by one of my favorite drive-thru breakfast treats, but with my twist, of course. I add a kiss of sweetness with sweet potato and a hint of spice with my house seasoning.


Miss Brown's House Seasoning:


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and sweet potatoes and boil until they can be easily pierced with a knife, but still have some resistance in the center, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain and let cool.
  2. Use a box grater to finely shred the cooled potatoes into a large bowl. If necessary, remove any excess water by pressing the shredded potatoes with paper towels.
  3. Pour 2 inches of the oil into a large Dutch oven. Heat the oil until it registers 350 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer.
  4. Meanwhile, stir the flour and Miss Brown’s House Seasoning into the potatoes. Shape the potatoes into 42 discs, about 1 teaspoon of potato mixture per disc. Working in batches, fry the potato bites until browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack to drain and cool. Keep warm in a low oven or serve immediately with ketchup.
