Parmesan & Truffle Mayo Sweet Potato Bites Recipe

I don’t think there’s ever such a thing as too many potato recipes, so here’s another one for you featuring deep-fried, grated sweet potato bites. They’re somewhat reminiscent of hash browns, but made with sweet potatoes, bite-sized, and loaded with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and drizzled truffle mayonnaise. Can’t beat that combination if you ask me!

  • sunflower oil
These deep-fried Sweet Potato Bites with Parmesan & Truffle Mayo are honestly great to serve as a snack but also do really well as individual bites for an appetizer or a party. They're soft on the inside, and crunchy on the outside, topped with savory Parmesan cheese, and creamy truffle mayonnaise. And maybe the best thing about them is they can easily be pre-cooked beforehand and popped back into the pan, fryer, oven, or air fryer for a little bit just before serving them!


How to Make Fried Sweet Potato Bites

  • After washing and peeling your sweet potatoes, pat them fully dry with a kitchen towel, then grate them, and transfer to a bowl.
  • Heat up a deep frying pan with plenty of oil or, turn your deep-fryer on and set it to 350°F or 180°C.
  • Either grate or finely dice your red onion, then add it to the grated sweet potatoes.
  • Crack the eggs and add them to the bowl, then mix everything together.
  • Season the mixture with plenty of black pepper and salt.
  • Add half the Parmesan cheese, and the flour, and mix once more.
  • Take about a heaping spoonful of the sweet potato batter and shape it into little oval bites. Line them up on a plate so they can all go into the pan in quick succession to each other.
  • Carefully drop the sweet potato batter into the oil, one by one. They best keep their shape when you carefully scoop the batter into the oil with two spoons.
  • Fry the sweet potato bites until crispy and golden brown. Unless you plan on serving them later on, then just undercook them, and finish them off just before serving.
  • Let the fried potato bites drain on some kitchen towel, then either transfer them to a plate to make it into one dish, or line them up on a serving dish to serve them as individual bites.
  • Finish the sweet potato bites off by sprinkling the rest of the Parmesan cheese over them, and either drizzle some truffle mayo over it or add a dollop of mayo on top. Serve & enjoy!
