Ingredients
  • 1½ cups cooked,mashed sweet potato
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup cheddar cheese (I use Cabot sharp cheddar but pepperjack would also be good)
  • 3 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 2-3 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1-2 jalapenos, minced (1 used 1 jalapeno & 1 serrano)

Instructions
  1. Combine the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Scoop into greased mini muffin tins.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Makes about 18 puffs.

 

Pretty easy, right? Like I said in the recipe, you don’t have to use cheddar cheese….I think pepperjack would be great as well. If you like spice, use serrano peppers instead of jalapenos, or a combination of the two.

These are best served warm but they can be made ahead of time and reheated in the microwave if needed.

I brought these over for my in laws to taste test and they gave them a thumbs up. Hubby and I have also eaten two batches since last Friday, so that’s a good sign!

Let me know if you give them a try!
