Ingredients

Sweet Tots:

2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds total)

3 to 4 quarts vegetable or canola oil 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 family-size bag salted potato chips, crushed to crumbs 

4 large eggs, whisked 

2 cups all-purpose flour 

Honey Mustard:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup Dijon mustard 

2 tablespoons honey 

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 

1/4 teaspoon cayenne 

Directions

  1. For the sweet tots: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prick the sweet potatoes, then place them on a baking sheet and roast until the fork tender, about 1 hour.
  3. Pour the oil into a Dutch oven and heat to 350 degrees F.
  4. Peel and mash the sweet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, and mix in 1 cup of potato chip crumbs. Place the remaining crumbs in a shallow bowl.
  5. Place the whisked eggs and flour each in shallow bowls and season with salt and pepper. Roll the sweet potato mash into 1 1/2-inch tots.
  6. Dredge the tots in the flour; dip in egg, letting the excess drip off; then roll in the chip crumbs to coat.
  7. Fry the tots until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  8. For the honey mustard: Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, vinegar and cayenne in a bowl until well blended. Serve with the tots.
