- 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
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.
