Basil Butter Sweet Potato Patties

This yummy recipe is from the Australian Women's Weekly's 'fresh food fast: delicious no-fuss healthy recipes'. When making patties, I often use well-greased egg rings. I have some that can be used in non-stick pans and place the mixture directly into these, then remove them when flipping the patties - with the help of two spatulas - to cook the reverse side.

  1. Boil, steam or microwave the sweet potato until it is tender; drain.
  2. Mash the sweet potato with butter in a medium bowl; stir in the basil, nuts, garlic, cheese and breadcrumbs; when cool enough to handle, shape the sweet potato mixture into 8 patties.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pan, preferably non-stick, and cook the patties in 2 batches, until browned on both sides and heated through; serve with your choice of meats and salad greens.
