  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cook the sweet potato in a large saucepan of boiling water for 15 mins or until tender. Add the broccoli and cook for a further 5 mins or until bright green. Drain well. Use a potato masher to mash until almost smooth. Add the peas, corn and cheddar and stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Shape the mixture into 12 nuggets. Place the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Dip 1 nugget in the flour and turn to lightly coat. Dip in the egg, then coat in breadcrumbs. Place on the lined tray. Repeat with the remaining nuggets.
  3. Step 3

    Spray the nuggets with olive oil spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, making sure to turn the nuggets halfway through cooking. Serve immediately.
