I just made these and because I don't like mashed tubers I only used 1 sweet potato....hoping it'd come out NOT like a ball of fried mashed potatoe.  It did.  I mean it's good but I think next time I will use 1 potato and double the amount of the zucc and onion.  Probably not the corn as I also don't really like corn.  I wanted something with a bit more texture is all. 


These were good. Yummy flavor. A bit soggy on the inside, I may add a bit more bread crumbs next time, but I will make them again. A good kid-friendly meal.
