Pulse or mix everything together until it resembles all mixed. Taste. Season extra according to taste.
Put them in clingfilm & place into the fridge. I leave them there for about 2 hours.
After 2 hours, take the meat out of the fridge. Take away the clingfilm.
Preheat the oven to 220 ° C.
Take your hands & mix everything together.
Place into the oven & bake until sticky & cooked trough. Sometimes this will take 20 minutes, depending on the size of the wedges or battons.

Put some baked onion rings on that & add some extra lettuce leaves. Top with the other half of dinner roll, smeared with ketchup! Serve your sweet potato fries on the side! They are spicy & so good!!
