Sweet Potato and Sherried Onion Bites

These Sweet Potato and Sherried Onion Bites make  for a sturdy, tasty, gluten free appetizer.

You can make them ahead and assemble just before serving or assemble and freeze until you are ready to bake.

This recipe uses a sweet potato base that I used chickpea flour in.  You could certainly  use all purpose if gluten is not an issue for you.

The recipe also uses a batch of this Creamy Sherried Onion recipe.  The onions are what make the taste.  The sweet potato base is really just a base that allows the onion mixture to shine through.

I have not experimented with these bases but you could probably use them as a gluten free alternative to crackers with things like hummus or other toppings.  If you try them a different way leave a comment and let me know what you did and how it turned out!

The Creamy Sherried Onion mixture takes about 40 minutes to make.  It is so good – believe me it is worth it!  The good news is you can make the onion mix a day or 2 ahead of time.  You can also make a  big batch and freeze it in smaller portions.

Instructions
  1. Pierce your sweet potato several times and microwave on high until tender. Mine took about 8 minutes. When cool enough to handle scoop out 1 cup and mash it. Reserve any remainder for another use.
  2. Add flour, rosemary and butter. Combine to make a soft dough.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Using a teaspoon scoop out a tsp full and form it into a ball in your hands. Pat down slightly to make a round patty. Place on the baking sheet so they are not touching.
  5. Make a slight indentation in the center of the patty to create a bit of a hollow to help hold your eventual topping.
  6. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
  7. When cool top with Creamy Sherried Onion topping. You can serve the warm or room temperature.
