For something other than sweet potato casserole, we serve sweet potato croquettes as a unique side dish.They're easier than you would think to make, and the relish can be prepared ahead and served chilled. —Radelle Knappenberger, Oviedo, Florida

  • 4 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 medium navel oranges, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, eggs, brown sugar, butter and salt. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Shape into 12 oval patties; flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Place walnuts in a shallow bowl; coat patties in nuts.
  2. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange juice, brown sugar and honey. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in oranges and, if desired, walnuts. Serve with patties.
