Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • olive oil


  • Preheat your oven to 450ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large pot of boiling water, add the potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes. This will parboil the potatoes so they will be slightly firm but able to be pierced with a fork.
  • Drain the potatoes and let cool 10 minutes. Using a box grater, grate the potatoes and place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning and form into tots.
  • Place on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Cook 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Serve with ketchup.


Make sure to only cook your potatoes to the par-boil stage otherwise it will be very messy to grate.
If you want a crispier tot, throw them under the broiler until golden brown.
