Recipe: Easy Sweet Potato Hash Browns


I love a good sweet and salty combination. Sweet potatoes are commonly devoured during the chilly months, but why should they be saved for the holidays? Sometimes I feel like breakfast foods taste like desserts - all sugar and no substance. This easy and savory sweet potato hash browns recipe gives you a hint of sugar with a very filling starch. Try this recipe at your next brunch and enjoy!


  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 of an onion, preferrably yellow
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt and white pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  1. Peel and grate the sweet potatoes on the large side of a grate. Do the same with the onion. Mix them together with the garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a cast iron pan or skillet on medium high heat.
  3. Add the potato mixture evenly and brown on one side for about 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Sprinkle the sugar on the uncooked side and mix the way you would scrambled eggs.
  5. Cook the potatoes for another 3-4 minutes until cooked through and serve!
