Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Sweet Potato Hash Browns 2Sweet Potato Hash Browns, made with both white and yellow sweet potatoes

I decided to make sweet potato hash browns when I wanted a slightly heartier breakfast than just eggs.  I don’t usually keep regular white potatoes on hand, but nearly always have sweet potatoes from my mom. (If I run out, I beg for more. ;))  They turned out well; I’m sure I’ll make them again.

Slightly adapted from this recipe

2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon dried parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste


Sweet Potato Hash Browns

1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil.  Add sweet potatoes, and cook until they can be easily pierced with a fork buy still offer some resistance (3-5 minutes, depending on size).  Drain.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onions and sauté, stirring occasionally until onions are tender and golden brown.  Transfer onions to a small bowl; set aside.

3. Pour remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil into skillet, and place over medium-high heat.  Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 8 minutes.  Add reserved onions and cook about 2 more minutes.  Toss in parsley, and adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
