                                            For 50 servings, about 3 qt 2½ cups (6 lb 12 oz).
                                            For 100 servings, about 7 qt 1 cup (13 lb 8 oz).
                                          • Combine sweet potatoes, pureed garbanzo beans, oil, salt, garlic, onions, pepper, onion powder, cinnamon, and flour. Mix well.
                                            Refrigerate at 40 °F for 40-50 minutes to make tots easier to form.
                                          • Using a No. 40 scoop, place mixture 1-inch apart on sheet pan (18” x 26” x 1”) lined with parchment paper and lightly coated with pan release spray.
                                            For 50 servings, use 4 pans. Make 300 tots.
                                            For 100 servings, use 8 pans. Make 600 tots.
                                          • Cover tots on sheet pan with layer of parchment paper then use a second sheet pan and lightly press to flatten tots.
                                          • Bake until light brown:
                                            Conventional oven: 400 °F for 12 minutes.
                                            Convection oven: 400 °F for 9 minutes.
                                            Critical Control Point: Heat to 135 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds.
                                          • Critical Control Point: Hold at 135 °F or higher for hot service.

                                          †The legumes in this recipe contribute to the other vegetable subgroup and not the meat/meat alternate component since the beans are not visibly recognizable as legumes in the Tasty Tots recipe. This vegetable side dish with legumes is limited to the vegetable component because of its function as a vegetable in the meal.
                                          FACT: Improving the nutrient content of the foods children eat by disguising nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits in the food is a great idea for people of all ages. However, it is not a menu planning principle that teaches and encourages children to recognize and choose a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables.
