Turning Baby Food into Delicious Grown-Up Fare

There I was, looking at the extra large batch of baked sweet potato I had made for Sophia. I quickly realized that freezing it seemed like a hassle. Besides, who knows how well the sweet potato will fare the freezer. I decided that since we are making our own baby food and it is really just a slightly more pureed version of what we eat anyways, there is nothing wrong with making our meal out of Sophia’s. I decided to also use up some goat cheese we’d had in the refrigerator and the idea of making fried balls of goodness (like Arancini) was born. I took the mashed sweet potato, added an egg, salt, pepper and about a half a cup of flour. The dough that it became, was still very wet and sticky. I used two spoons to shape canelle-like balls inserting rolled up goat cheese inside. Once shaped, each one was rolled in Panko. The faux arancini were ready for a quick bath in the hot oil.They were divine served hot! But then again, what fried food isn’t?
