Sweet potato patties

Kids LOVE these patties!!! They are sweet and an attractive colour. You can mix it up by adding your favourite spices and herbs. This is a great recipe for batch cooking / freezing, simply make more than you need and freeze them before baking on a single layer. Once frozen bag them up to save freezer space.
