Cooking Steps

  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. 2

    Wash sweet potatoes, wrap in aluminum foil, and place on baking sheet. Bake 2 hours or until very tender. Let cool.

  3. 3

    Put oil into 3-quart saucepan and heat to 350 degrees (using a deep-fry thermometer).

  4. 4

    Peel cooled sweet potatoes and add flesh to  medium-sized bowl. Add salt, then mash sweet potato flesh with fork until smooth. Line up three shallow bowls with flour, eggs, and panko breadcrumbs. Scoop about a tablespoon of sweet potato flesh, roll it in a ball between your palms, then roll it in flour, beaten egg, and finally panko. Repeat with remaining sweet potato until you have a plate full of balls ready to fry.

  5. 5

    Fry sweet potato balls until golden brown on the outside, about 1 minute. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels or on a rack set over a baking sheet.

  6. 6

    Serve immediately with Spiced Fig Not Ketchup for dipping.
