    Oh my god these were so yummy & my 1YO just kept on eating them, I have no idea how he found the room tmrc_emoticons.)

    I used this recipe for the breadcrumbs and highly recommend it

    Very tasty, love the sweet potato

    These were beautiful in taste.  I would recommend adding 1/2 of the total breadcrumbs (not 1/2 cup) as they were soft and i had heaps of breadcrumbs left over.  Definately will be making again.

    Lovely tasting recipe. 

    I used only sweet potatoe this time but in future will mix a white potatoe with the sweet potatoe for a slightly firmer mixture. 

    Delicious, thank you

    Thanks for this recipe, I have these in the fridge ready to bake tonight.  a couple of comments - the method doesn't mention the parsley, I hand chopped it (shock!!) and added it with the tuna etc, would you chop it with the onion? Also, at the end mixing on reverse/stir speed didn't really incorporate everything, I did reverse speed 3 for 30-60 secs.
