Sweet Potato Hash in 5 Easy Steps!
Good Morning Everyone!
Are you having a wonderful weekend? This weekend the skies opened up and it rained nearly all weekend long! This was quite the shock, because where I live it hardly rains all year long. So you can imagine how excited my family was, pressed up against the glass windows staring at the rain in awe. It was pretty adorable. But let’s get back to today’s recipe! Breakfast. I love breakfast. I am definitely a morning person which is perfect because I love waking my family up to the smells of a big weekend breakfast. However, sometimes I want something fast and tasty. Now that fall and winter are here, it’s time to bust out the root vegetable recipes. Today I want to share with you this super easy, sweet potato has recipe.
I’ve tried making hash browns before, but either I boiled the potatoes too long and they ended up mushy, or I cooked them too little and they ended up too raw and crunchy! Now, I can shout from the rooftops that I’ve nailed this recipe down and I’m super excited to share it with you! From start to finish it takes about 25 minutes to cook, including frying an egg to put on top. So before you go stand in those mile-long lines at the local breakfast joint, head into your kitchen and give this super simple, yet incredibly tasty recipe a try. Enjoy everyone and have a fantastic Sunday! 🙂
Sweet Potato Hash in 5 Easy Steps:
Yields: 3 servings
Courtesy of: Lisa aka The Noob Chef
- 2 yams, peeled and washed
- 1 onion, peeled and sliced
- Cajun seasoning
- Oil for frying
Step 1: Peel, cut and wash your yams. Then cut into cubes. (Don’t worry about knife cuts here. Just chop those taters up!)
Step 2: Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Put the yams in the boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. (You want them soft enough to be pricked with a fork but not fall apart).
Step 3: Drain the yams and set them into a mixing bowl. Now it’s time to season! I used Cajun seasoning because I love to kick things up a notch. But you can alternatively use Old Bay Seasoning, salt, and black pepper, for a savory yet mild flavor. Or you can also use a bit of dried sage and rosemary with salt and pepper, for a more herb-y breakfast potato. Use your palate and get creative!
Step 4: Heat up your oil in a saucepan on high heat. When the oil is hot, test it out with a piece of sweet potato. It should sizzle immediately when you drop it in. If it does, you’re ready to fry! Drop in the sweet potatoes and fry for 3 minutes. (This is important: don’t touch the potatoes for 3 minutes. Let them brown and sit in the pan!) Then after 3 minutes, flip them over with a spatula. Add your chopped onions. Fry for an additional 3 minutes.
Step 5: Divide into equal portions and top with a fried egg and serve. Enjoy!
