Yield: 6 servings

Level: Intermediate



  • 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 


  • For the sweet tots: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Prick the sweet potatoes, then place them on a baking sheet and roast until the fork tender, about 1 hour.

  • Pour the oil into a Dutch oven and heat to 350 degrees F.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dredge the tots in the flour; dip in egg, letting the excess drip off; then roll in the chip crumbs to coat.

  • 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.

  • For the honey mustard: Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, vinegar and cayenne in a bowl until well blended. Serve with the tots.
