Sweet Potato Turkey Poppers

Yields Approximately 25 Poppers
Cooking Time: 30 mins



  • 1 lb ground turkey (you can use ground chicken too)
  • 2 cups raw (not cooked) sweet potato, finely grated or put in a food processor
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil + 1 tsp for greasing the baking sheet
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2-3 sprigs green onion, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Optional: 1 tsp paprika or chili powder for a little spicy kick!


  • Food Processor


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly grease a lined baking sheet with coconut oil.
  2. Take the raw sweet potato and squeeze it with a paper towel or cheesecloth to remove any excess liquid.
  3. Add all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  4. Begin rolling the mixture into small, slightly flattened poppers about one inch in diameter (you'll have about 20-25 poppers) and place them on the cooking sheet.
  5. Place in the oven for 25-28 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  6. Crisp further in a pan or place under the broiler if desired for 1-2 minutes to crisp further.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool. Serve with your favorite sauce like Paleo ketchup, mustard or honey mustard etc.

For the dipping sauce, I choose a honey dijon mustard that is equal parts honey and dijon mustard. It's super simple but absolutely delicious. Get creative with your dips the possibilities are endless!
