What would you suggest for a finger food sweet potato recipe?

We are having a small get-together this coming weekend and will be implementing a small ‘Thanksgiving’ type meal/snacks. The problem, they need to be finger-foods or easy to eat, easy to access foods. For example, we’ll be having turkey sandwiches, etc. I would like to try to make something that has sweet potatoes in it. Does anyone know of any finger-food recipe that has sweet potatoes in it?
Thanks so much!

Yumm….

    You could make french fried sweet potatoes. You could probably find different recipes by doing a search on Yahoo!
    Good Luck!

    Try that. It’s sweet potato cups. The cups are orange peels. Sounds interesting. If you’re on cooks.com, there’s also a cookie recipe for sweet potatoes.
    Good luck!

    why not make them like french fries, or potato chips. with dip.

    I would also make some ham sandwiches. not everyone likes or can eat turkey. also make something like cucumber sandwiches for those who may be vegetarian.

    How about deviled eggs with the egg white, and mashed sweet potatoes piped into the center rather than the egg yolk?

    Make sweet potato tart pies. you know those little bitty ones like mini quiche?

    Or just cut them about 1/2 inch thick and grill them.

    Sweet Potato Wontons

    2 (15 ounce) cans sweet potatoes, drained (often called yams when canned)
    1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    24 wonton wrappers
    1 egg white, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup canola oil, more if needed
    Directions
    1In a large bowl, mash sweet potatoes with cheese, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg with a fork or potato masher until well blended. You don’t have to get them perfectly smooth.
    2Place 8 wonton wrappers on a work surface. Add 1 tablespoon filling in the center of each wrapper. Brush edges of wrapper lightly with egg white. Bring one corner of wrapper to the opposite corner to enclose the filling and make a triangle. Press down gently to flatten sweet potato mixture slightly and press edges firmly together to seal in filling. Repeat with remaining wontons and filling.
    3Heat 1/2 cup oil in a 12-inch skillet to medium heat. Add 8 ravioli to oil and cook 1 minute on each side or until golden. Remove ravioli with tongs to drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining ravioli, adding up to 1/4 cup more oil if necessary.
    4In a small microwave-safe serving bowl, heat 1/2 cup of cranberry fig sauce in the microwave on high 20-30 seconds or until warm -OR- heat the sauce on the stove top over low heat about 5 minutes or until warm. Serve ravioli immediately with warm sauce for dipping.

    Spicy Sweet-potato Sticks

    3 large sweet potatoes (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    3 tbsp unsalted butter
    1/2 cup water (or as needed)
    3 tbsp honey
    salt
    white pepper
    ground ginger
    ground cardamom
    ground cloves

    Pare the sweet potatoes and cut into short sticks about 1/4-inch thick (if you have a food processor with a disk designed for French fries, use that).

    Heat the oil and butter in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat; don’t let the fat brown.

    Add the potato sticks and toss to coat; season with salt, white pepper, about 1/4 tsp each of ginger, cardamom, and a small pinch of cloves. Add 1/2 cup water; adjust the heat to medium-low, and cook, tossing often, but gently, for about 5 minutes, adding drops of water if needed to prevent sticking.

    Add the honey and continue to toss-cook until the sticks are just tender and nicely glazed, perhaps 3 minutes. Check the seasonings and serve promptly.

    Yield: 6 servings
