Sweet Potato Tater Tots

Sweet Potato Tater Tots

In November, delicious sweet potatoes are a Foods of the Month. Are you in need of a new weeknight recipe to serve to your kids? If you and your family love sweet potato fries, you will most definitely enjoy these healthy baked sweet potato tater tots. Instead of using breadcrumbs or frying your tater tots, use chopped or ground walnuts instead! Nuts have more nutritional benefits than frying or using breadcrumbs, like a serving of healthy fats, protein, magnesium and fiber. Add that to the Vitamin A and potassium that you get from sweet potatoes and it makes for a nutrient packed side dish! Best of all, you can make these healthy tots with your children, involving them in the process of creating healthy meals.
