PATE A CHOUX
Pate a Choux: =============
Boil water with butter and salt.
Add flour all at once and beat vigorously until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball.
Off of the heat, beat in the eggs, one or two at a time, until incorporated and smooth.
Sweet Potatoes: =============== Cook the sweet potato slices in boiling salted water until tender.
Mash with a spatula and fold into the choux mixture.
Season with a dash of nutmeg.
Heat deep fat to 360 F.
Form the mixture into balls with two spoons (dipping one spoon into the hot fat will facilitate the forming process) and fry until golden brown.
