Sweet Potato Broccoli Patties

A savory finger food with a hint of sweet. You won’t believe it’s filled with veggies!

During nights we order takeout or are eating something that isn’t entirely nutritious (yes, I am human too and I don’t always cook a full meal,) I make some form of patty. It’s a great way to get some veggies in!

I also recognize some of you have kiddos that won’t eat anything green. I’ve made other types of patties in the past like these broccoli cheese patties , but I know some of your kids won’t eat it if they see any type of green in it. This patty is a yellowish orange color similar to a chicken nugget! You may not believe it, but these patties have a lot of broccoli. These are great for beginner eaters and older kids that may turn up their nose to veggies.
