Sweet Potato Patties with Black Beans

As I’ve told you before, I love sweet potatoes. We eat them frequently, and in many ways, in our house. I love a baked sweet potato – but sometimes end up with an extra. I developed this recipe to make one baked sweet potato into a side dish for the 3 of us – Sweet Potato Patties with Black Beans. 

Black beans are a great source of protein, and I wanted to add some to this to make it a hearty side. You could eat this as a main dish as well, and I sometimes do for lunch. 

Sweet Potato Patty

For this, I used a baked sweet potato that I had in the fridge. If you don’t have one of those on hand, you can just microwave a peeled sweet potato until soft.

Then, mash it up with a fork.

Add your seasonings.

Mix in your black beans.

Mix together some breadcrumbs and parmesan. I don’t measure this… I would say it’s about 1/4 c. of breadcrumbs and a couple tablespoons of cheese. You won’t use a lot of this at all. I just like it to get a bit of a crisp crust on the patty.

Make a patty with the sweet potato mixture and coat with breadcrumbs.

Cook on hot griddle until browned and “crisp”. 

Note: These are mushy sweet potatoes – they aren’t actually going to be crispy. You are mostly forming a nice crust on the outside.
