Sweet Potato Poppers

Did everyone have a crazy night out on New Years Eve?
My husband and I got chinese take out, rented a Redbox movie, and each had half a glass of champagne before calling it a night.
We’re pretty crazy.
The sushi was delicious and a quiet night in with my husband was just fine with me. We did VIP bottle service at a club last year and South Beach the year before that, so this was a fine change of pace.
New Years day was more of a celebration – trying out a sweet potato version of Jess’s delicious looking potato puffs to take to my aunt’s house to watch the Steelers beat on the Browns.
I omitted the milk, parmesan, and green onions, and used some almond flour, graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, and puffed rice cereal instead of the bread crumbs.
The parmesan must play a roll in the resulting texture, but I couldn’t figure out any other substitution (other than almond flour). Maybe a spicy, savory version with chili powder, parmesan, and rosemary?
They were still tasty, but more like dessert. I plan on trying the original version soon.
Make any great recipes over the long weekend? Have you ever spent a quiet New Years Eve in?
