Sweet Potato gnocchi topped with butter and brown sugar.
These sweet potato gnocchi are made with just couple simple ingredients: sweet potato, flour and 1 egg. They are smeared with melted butter and topped with brown sugar. I didn’t know what to name my “dumplings” if they are gnocchi or not. I thought this name will be perfect and everyone will know what the recipe is.
My children loved these sweet potato gnocchi. They are totally 100% kid-approved. They were asking for more so when I get my sweet potato from the store I’ll be making them again. At first I thought that maybe I should keep them savory. But I quickly realized that sweet potato is sweet and it will be perfect to make them with butter (so good!) and brown sugar.
These are the perfect sweet potato gnocchi that I had. I wanted to share with you my recipe on my blog. So if you’ll have a chance just make them. There are so tasty and so easy to make. You and your children will be asking for more. Obviously, the BEST gnocchi ever:)
This is the type of dinner that I can serve to my children. They have some amount of sweet potato that I’m happy. They don’t usually eat sweet potato.
