TIPS AND TRICKS FOR SWEET POTATO HASH BROWNS

  • You’ll want to be “up” on your method for roasting sweet potatoes, it isn’t hard, simply make sure to spread them out far enough so that they roast rather than steam. Check out the video in the recipe card for up close shots on that. 
  • Cut everything in similar sizes so that it cooks evenly
  • Sprinkle the seasoning evenly throughout. 
  • A little extra char on the sweet potatoes tastes just awesome with the veggies in this dish. 
  • Go easy on the oil, it seems like to little, but really its just right.

LETS SEE HOW THIS GOES..

First, cube the sweet potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and cubed in 1 inch cubes
  • 4 Tbs Oil divided
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 1 red or green bell pepper chopped
  • ¼ Cup green onions chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400.  Cover half sheet rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Spread the cubed sweet potatoes out over the baking sheet.  Add 2 Tbs oil, salt and pepper and mix well coating the sweet potato cubes in the oil. 
  • Spread the sweet potato cubes out so that they aren't touching to allow them to cook well.
  • Bake the sweet potato cubes for 20 minutes at 400 degrees until soft throughout and slightly caramelized. 
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tbs olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red onions, bell peppers, green onions and garlic and sauté until tender and lightly golden – about 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • When Sweet potatoes are roasted, add to the skillet and mix well. Add the paprika and sugar.  Mix well.  Heat through.  Squeeze half a lemon over the dish and serve. 

Notes

  • This dish has lots of variations you can use.  
  • It is fine to substitute 1 tbs onion powder for the onion.
  • Use a variety of bell peppers or other peppers to suit tastes.  Its beautiful with more colored peppers. 
  • Use any cooking oil you prefer.  Peanut oil gives a nice flavor.  Likewise, bacon grease gives a good flavor too. 
  • This dish will suffer if you don't use enough salt and pepper. 
  • The sugar is optional but we think it improves the overall taste of the dish.
