Recipe in Words

Magic Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato (about 20 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup panko (more if needed)

Instructions to Bliss


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Pierce the sweet potato in several places with a fork. Place it on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until it’s softened and just beginning to caramelize, 45-60 minutes. Cool potato completely.
  • Discard the skin and transfer the insides of the potato to a small bowl. Mash and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • After the refrigeration period, preheat the oven again to 400ºF.
  • Remove sweet potato from refrigerator. Stir in the cinnamon and maple syrup. Add salt to taste, if desired. Fold in the egg.
  • Pour the panko onto a small plate. Form nugget shapes with the sweet potato mixture (it will be wet, but don’t worry, it will hold together!), coat the nuggets with panko, and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. If the nuggets are a little messy looking, you can press them into nice shapes on the baking sheet. Spray each side of the nuggets with an oil mister — this is optional, but it helps the exterior get crispy and brown.
  • Bake the nuggets for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time, until they’re golden brown and warmed through.
