Hash Brown Sweet Potatoes

Prep time: 20 mins ● Cook time: 10 mins● Yield: 4 servings

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, about 1½ pounds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 scoop Grown American™ Superfood
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 or more tablespoons coconut or avocado oil
Directions: Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Grate potatoes using a box grater. Place the sweet potatoes in a colander and rinse until the water runs clear to remove some of the starch. Sprinkle on the salt and let the potatoes sit in the colander for about 10 minutes.

Place potatoes in paper towels or a clean kitchen towel and firmly squeeze to remove any excess water. (Having less water in the potatoes will give you crispier hash browns; too much water will cause them to steam, not brown.) Place potatoes in a bowl and add Grown American™ Superfood and pepper and mix well.

Add oil to a cast iron or heavy-bottom skillet and place over medium-high heat. The pan should be very hot when you add the potatoes. Test it by placing a few shreds of potato in the pan. They should immediately sizzle. If the oil isn’t hot enough, the potatoes won’t brown.

Sauté potatoes undisturbed for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels.

Note: If you don’t have a really large skillet, it’s better to cook in batches to get crispier hash browns. You’ll need about 2 tablespoons or more oil per batch if your pan is smaller than 10-inches in diameter.

Variations: If you like onions in your hash brown, you can add about ½ cup grated or finely chopped onions. If you want to add spice, try about 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ¾ teaspoon cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon nutmeg. A dash of cayenne will add a tiny bit of heat to balance the sweetness.
