CEOS COOK! FUN THINGS TO DO WITH YAM! DIFFERENT & YUMMY!

You possibly get tired of eating the usual Boiled or Fried yam. Well, there are other fun things to do with yams. Sometimes I make these yam balls with sweet potato, Irish potatoes and yams Other times i add ground beef like I did in this particular recipe or Tuna for a change.

You’ll need

  • Boiled yam/some Irish potatoes
  • Breadcrumbs

yam balls 1

Just before frying
  • One egg
  • red and green bell peppers
  • minced meat
  • onions
  • garlic powder
  • seasoning
  • some butter

Lets cook

  • saute some garlic and onions and add the minced meat, break it up with the spoon and some seasoning, let it cook till its no longer pink.
  • Add the red and green bell peppers and sautee for a bit(drain the excess oil if any),add the  garlic powder also and allow to simmer, set aside.
  • mash your boiled yam and add the minced meat mixture,a knob of butter,part of the egg.
  • Form into balls and refrigerate for about 20 minutes to allow firm up
  • make your dredging station…pour breadcrumbs in one plate,and beat an egg in another plate.
  • Heat some oil, put the yam ball in the egg, then roll in the breadcrumbs and fry till golden brown, drain on paper towels and serve with a sauce.
