Spicy Sweet Potato Fritters with Poachies

Hey everyone,

I’m back with a mini foodie series over the next few weeks with *VIDEO TUTORIALS* (!!!!yes!!!) to accompany each post. Make sure you’re subscribed to the blog via email and also over on my YouTube channel. I really hope the  series can help you out or give you some inspo you with lots of quick, cheap and healthy recipes. My YouTube skills are a lil rusty but i’ve been spending a lot of time researching so hopefully they will get better and better! I’ve got a lot of the videos and posts prepped but of course if there is anything in particular you’d like to see a tutorial of (Maybe a recipe i’ve posted here on my blog before) then let me know!


3 Small Sweet Potatoes
3 Eggs
Feta Cheese
Coconut Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar 


  • First up you need to get your sweet potatoes peeled and grated up and into a bowl
  • Next crack 1 of the eggs into a bowl and whisk it up ready to add your grated sweet potatoes back in
  • Once you’ve added your sweet potatoes back in, it’s time to add in your seasoning; salt, pepper and a spoonful of harissa to add a bit of spice to your fritters – adding harissa is totally optional!
  • Once combined, roll your sweet potato mixture into 3 equal balls and set aside ready to go into the frying pan
  • Get your frying pan hot over a medium heat and melt a teaspoon of coconut oil in the centre, make sure you swirl it around so theres no chance of your fritters getting stuck and burning
  • Get some water boiling in a saucepan on another hob ring ready for the remaining 2 eggs to be poached
  • Add your fritters to the frying pan and flatten to approx 2cm thick straight away with the back of a utensil so that they cook evenly
  • Cook over a low-med heat for 1min30sec before flipping
  • Once flipped, add a capful of apple cider vinegar to the saucepan of boiling water and create a whirlpool using a spoon to help keep your poached eggs intact (This usually works but you’ll see in the video that my poachies turned out pretty ugly haha – maybe it was the nerves?)
  • Crack your eggs into the saucepan and leave them to it for the remaining time it takes for your fritters to cook
  • Finally, chop up some chunks of feta to sprinkle on top of the fritters and poached eggs once you’ve plated everything up (It would look sooO much more #Instagram with some avocado but we’re on a budget here guys – I used feta as I had some in my fridge from making a salad)

This is such a simple recipe which would be perfect at any time of day, especially for breakfast. Talking of breakfast, I currently have a “My Week Of Breakfasts” video and post in the works so stay tuned!
