2-cups mashed sweet potatoes

· To make the sauce, place a small sauce pan over low heat and add the butter, let melt, add the syrup, cinnamon, salt, and bourbon if using, stir till combined and set aside.

· In a mixing bowl, place the mashed sweet potatoes, eggs and vanilla; mix together.

· Using an ice cream scoop, place 4 individual scoops of the potato mixture into the hot butter, making sure they are well separated.

· Fry for 3-4 mins or until edges start to brown, flip and fry another 3-4 mins, these should be golden brown, remove and place on serving plate, repeat until the potato mixture is gone.
