Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and add sweet potatoes. Boil until potatoes can be pierced with a fork but are still firm, about 15 minutes. Do not over-boil, or they will be messy to grate. Drain and let cool.

  • Grate sweet potatoes into a bowl using a box grater. Carefully mix in Cajun seasoning. Form mixture into tot-shaped cylinders.

  • Spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray. Place tots in the basket in a single row without touching each other or the sides of the basket. Spray tots with olive oil spray and sprinkle with sea salt.

  • Heat air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook tots for 8 minutes. Turn, spray with more olive oil spray, and sprinkle with more sea salt. Cook for 8 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You may need to cook tots in batches depending on the size of your air fryer basket.

Pretty tasty. My kids liked these a lot. They go very well with hamburgers. The sweet and spicy were a nice contrast. I burned the first batch so watch the times. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This didn't work at all--the tots didn't bind together, so I just wound up with balls of sorta mashed sweet potatoes. Read More

I did not make these yet but was wondering if you could just microwave the sweet potatoes instead of the hassle of boiling them? Read More
