Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Puffs

A crisp outside leads to a velvety mixture of mashed sweet potato and tangy goat cheese in the center.

  1. Preheat deep fryer to 350° F.
  2. In medium bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes, goat cheese, flour, 1⁄2 tsp. rosemary, 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy and smooth. 
  3. Cover. Refrigerate 20-25 minutes. Potato mixture will be soft. The colder it is, the more firm it will be. Work with cold potatoes. 
  4. Using small melon scoop (about 11⁄2 tsp.), scoop potato mixture into 40-48 balls. Place balls on sheet trays. Refrigerate until ready to cook. 
  5. In another medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, remaining 1⁄2 tsp. rosemary 
  6. and remaining 1⁄4 cup Parmesan cheese. Mix. 
  7. Prepare about 5 puffs at a time. Drop balls into egg. Coat potato balls completely. 
  8. Move balls to bread crumbs. Roll them until fully covered. 
  9. Place coated potato balls in hot deep fryer. Cook about 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and hot in center. 
  10. Remove puffs from fryer and drain. Serve immediately.
