Savory Sweet Potato Buckwheat Patties

Hallo foodies and football fiends!

What I’d like to do: Crab about today’s game being blacked out.

What I’m going to do: Listen to the game on the radio and drown my misery in savory sweet potato buckwheat patties.

Since North Carolina (home of the Panthers) is the number one producer of sweet potatoes in the United States, it seemed only natural to whip up a lunch with the vitamin-C laden beauties for today’s post on eating my way through the NFL.

Just like a perfectly done cookie, these patties are a bit gooey on the inside but chewy and browned on the outside. The seeds on the top add the perfect bit of crunch!

While most of my football buddies would choose pizza and wings over these as a halftime munchie, I thought these were a fun alternative to traditional game day food…and anything I can dip in honey mustard is good in my book!

How’d your team do?  We swept the Panthers – for a crap team, the Bucs are doing decently this season! This makes me verrrrrrry happy 🙂

  6. We watch CFL football (Canadian Football League) and my province’s team was in a play off home game yesterday. We won in double overtime! We have one more play off game, and if we win it we will be playing in the grey cup (our version of the super bowl)
