Sweet Potato Hash Recipe

Sharing is Caring

This Sweet Potato Hash Recipe has a sweet and salty contrast that is essentially a crisp breakfast potato that pairs well with a fried egg.

Growing up, sweet potatoes weren’t something we ate often. Usually when they showed up it was at a Thanksgiving dinner where some guest would plop down a dish smotthered with melted marshmellows. And you would find out real quick that this was not a dessert rather a veggie dish disguised as one. It took me well into my adult years before giving them a try in my own kitchen. All these years later, I love them. Minus the marshmellows that is.

What You Will Need To make Sweet Potato Hash:

3 sweet potatoes

¼ cup of coconut oil

1 tbsp olive oil 

1 tbsp chives

2 tbsp flat leaf parsley 

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cloves of garlic

Directions:

In a cast iron skillet, heat the coconut oil. While the pan heats dice the sweet potatoes into small cubes. When the pan is hot, add them to the skillet. Salt and pepper the sweet potatoes and allow them to cook for about 5 minutes.

In the meantime, mince the cloves of garlic and chop both the flat leaf parsley and chives. Stir the potatoes and allow them to cook for approximately another 5 minutes.

Once they begin to soften, add the chives, half the parsley and all the minced garlic. I like to also add another pinch of  salt as I like the salty contrast with the sweetness of these potatoes.Give the pans contents a good stir.

Allow them to cook another couple minutes. When the potatoes look done, drizzle the olive oil over them, then take the back side of your spoon and pack them down slightly.
