These Sweet Potato Fritters by Jamie Oliver are the perfect dish for either lunch or dinner, and they are really simple to cook even when camping. I like to call to these lovely morsels, which enhance the sweetness that is already present in sweet potatoes, as pan-fried perfection. They are a great way to highlight the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes.

What Is Jamie Oliver Sweet Potato Fritters?

There are very few things that can compete with the undeniable appeal of fried potatoes, and these sweet potato fritters are certainly not one of them. These fritters, cooked in a skillet until they are golden brown and crisp all the way around, are sure to be a favourite with campers of all ages. To prepare the batter, you only need to grate a sweet potato, cut some green onions, and mix those ingredients with an egg, some flour, and some seasonings. After that, heat some oil in a skillet made of cast iron and pan fried the meat until it is a golden brown color.

Jamie Oliver Sweet Potato Fritters Ingredients:

  • Sweet potatoes: The sweet and somewhat nutty flavor of sweet potatoes is one of our favorites, and we find that it goes wonderfully with the chipotle mayonnaise.
  • Green onions: also known as scallions, are wonderful for imparting the flavor of onions without requiring them to be cooked all the way through.
  • Egg: is the glue that holds everything together and makes it all possible. For a vegan alternative, try using the egg replacer from Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Flour: The right amount of flour to prevent the fritters from falling apart, but not so much that they have a “cakey” consistency.
  • Powdered Garlic: The use of garlic powder in these fritters helps to achieve a balance between the sweet and savory flavors.
  • Chipotle Mayo:  You have the option of purchasing a pre-made version of chipotle mayo or making your own with powdered chipotle and mayonnaise (see recipe card).

How To Make Jamie Oliver Sweet Potato Fritters?

  • In a pan made of cast iron, bring a very thin coating of oil up to temperature over medium heat.
  • While the oil is heating up, prepare the other ingredients by grating the sweet potato on the largest holes of a box grater and chopping the scallions. Combine the vegetables with the beaten egg, flour, half a teaspoon of garlic powder, and half a teaspoon of salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Put dollops of batter equaling a third of a cup each into the heated oil, and then use a fork or a spatula to push the batter down and flatten it. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on one side, or until it reaches a golden brown color. After turning it over, brown the other side for another two to four minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter after transferring the first batch to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chipotle powder, garlic powder, and salt. This will be the base for the chipotle mayo.
  • Serve while still hot, garnishing each portion with more sliced scallions and a dollop of chipotle mayonnaise.

Recipe Tips

  • Be careful not to use too much oil! Because they are cooked in a skillet rather than in a deep fryer, the amount of oil required to cook them is only a few teaspoons.
  • Choose an oil that is mild and unscented. We recommend using grapeseed, avocado, canola, or vegetable oil because all of these have a mild flavor that won’t compete with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, and all of these oils also have a high smoke point.
  • Do not use sweet potatoes that have been grated and frozen. The tendency of frozen veggies to retain extra moisture is a problem, because water is the primary foe of oil (and pan frying, in general).
  • Before serving, be sure to drain! After cooking, remove the fritters from the pan and place them on a dish lined with paper towels or a wire rack to drain any leftover oil. Be careful to give each one an instant light dusting of Kosher salt as soon as possible!

Why Are My Sweet Potato Fritters Not Crispy?

The most typical reasons for fritters to turn out soggy include using an excessive amount of batter (a simple flour and egg mixture, like the kind used in pancakes, will never turn out crispy) and using ingredients that absorb an excessive amount of water while cooking.

Why Are My Sweet Potato Fritters Soggy?

Either there is an insufficient quantity of substances that bind, such as egg and flour, or the temperature at which they are fried is too high. How can I prevent the potato fritters from becoming mushy and how can I make them crispier? The overabundance of fluids and flour in potato fritters is the primary contributor to their potential to get soggy. Or, you may try cooking at a lower temperature.
