It’s no secret that I love sweet potatoes almost as much as avocado. A few weeks back, I visited a cafe in Dallas, TX that serves sweet potato tater tots. Their sweet potato tot got me thinking that I should create my own calorie-friendly version of it. And, who would have thought that my first attempt will come out pretty good?
In the year 1953, a company was trying to think of a way of using the leftover trimmings of potatoes. So, they decided to chop up the slivers then add some seasonings and flour. The product was later on called tater tots and was commercially sold in stores by 1956.
Sweet potato is a sweet, starchy root vegetable. It’s a good source of dietary fiber, protein, beta carotene, potassium, manganese, antioxidants, and vitamins B, C, and E. It also has a lot of health benefits making it suitable for every special diet you’re into.

Baked Sweet Potato Tots
Ingredients for about 5 servings:
- 4 medium sweet potatoes (~1000g)
- spray olive oil
- sea salt to taste
Set oven to 430F.
Wash the sweet potatoes and remove any visible dirt by rinsing them under warm water. Then, use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin.
Add water to a pot and bring it to boil. Toss in the peeled sweet potatoes and parboil them for NO MORE than 15 minutes. You want the potatoes firm, yet soft to touch. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool to about room temperature so you can handle them to touch.
Grate the sweet potatoes into a bowl.
Grab a small handful of the grated sweet potato and form a small tater tot. Repeat for the remaining grated sweet potato. Place the tots on a baking rack, or nonstick baking sheet, then generously spray them with olive oil and sprinkle a little sea salt on top.
Bake the tots for 40 minutes and flip them halfway through cooking to ensure all sides are nice and crispy.
