I’ve also put together a short cooking video to help you: How to Make Sweet Potato Hash Browns. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do!
Sweet Potato Hash Browns
1 ½ pounds sweet potato, peeled, shredded
1 cup chopped onion
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Mix sweet potatoes and onions in a large bowl. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-low to medium heat in a large skillet. Add about half of the sweet potatoes and onions, and stir to coat. Press with a spatula to flatten. Cook about 7-8 minutes; do not stir. Flip, and cook another 3-5 minutes. Remove from skillet, and set aside. Repeat to cook remaining vegetables. When done, combine the two batches in the skillet. Cook another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
- To shred potatoes, it’s best to use a food processor (shredding disc attachment), although you can do it by hand.
- Variation: Use a combination of sweet potatoes and Yukon Gold or russet potatoes.
- Makes a great breakfast dish!
