Ingredients

  • 20 oz. pkg. frozen sweet potato tots thawed
  • non-stick spray
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 oz. neufchatel cheese softened
  • ¼ cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray a 12 muffin tin with non-stick spray.
  • Crumble and spread 5-6 tots into each muffin cup to form crust.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes to set the crust. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients except cinnamon (ricotta cheese to egg) and stir well with a fork.
  • Pour batter into cups without overfilling. (Depending on how thick your sweet potato crust is, there may be extra batter. If so, you may use this to make additional servings.)
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over each muffin cup then bake for 15 minutes.
  • Makes approx. 12-15 muffins

Notes

Pro Tips:

  • Line the muffin tins with liners for easier clean up.
  • Let the sweet potato tots thaw some to make it easier to press into muffin tin.
  • Use a cup with a pouring spout to make pouring batter into muffin tins easier.
