I enjoyed these sweet potato sage balls very much. These are not a usual potato cake. They are quite delicate on the palate but also quite flavourful. I had to use 3 Tbsp of mayonnaise instea...

I did not care for this recipe. These sweet potato sage balls were REALLY bland -- perhaps creative seasoning would help. Great idea, but IMHO needs work.

I've been getting a lot of sweet potatoes in my weekly produce box and I don't really like them because they're, well...sweet. I was worried these would still carry the sweetness of the potatoes...
