If I had my act together, I would have posted these little puffs in time for you to make them for the Super Bowl. But I don’t, and I didn’t…so I’m posting them now. Luckily for me, I just found out that February is, in fact, National Sweet Potato Month! How perfect for me, right? I’ll share this recipe with you…and then at the bottom of this post I’ll round up some of my favorite sweet potato recipes for you to check out if you need more sweet potatoes in your life. And trust me- you do
These Jalapeno Cheddar Sweet Potato Puffs are a savory spin on my Sweet Potato Banana Bites that I make weekly for a pre-workout snack! They’re simple to make and require only a few ingredients!
Here’s what you do:
- 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)
- Combine the ingredients in a bowl.
- Scoop into greased mini muffin tins.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
- 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!
