- Sweet potatoes
- Cooking oil (such as olive oil or vegetable oil)
- Salt and pepper (optional for seasoning)
Peel and Grate the Sweet Potatoes:
Peel the sweet potatoes and use a box grater or a food processor with a grating attachment to grate the sweet potatoes. Aim for medium to fine-sized shreds.
Squeeze Out Excess Moisture (Optional):
Place the grated sweet potatoes in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. This step is optional but can help make the hash browns crispier.
Heat Oil in a Pan:
In a skillet or frying pan, heat a couple of tablespoons of cooking oil over medium heat. Make sure the pan is well-coated to prevent sticking.
Form Hash Brown Patties:
Take handfuls of the grated sweet potatoes and press them together to form patties. You can make them as thick or as thin as you prefer.
Cook the Hash Browns:
Place the formed patties into the hot skillet. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy. You can press down on the patties with a spatula to flatten them a bit if you like them crispier.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over the hash browns to taste. You can also add other seasonings like paprika or garlic powder if desired.
Once the hash browns are cooked to your liking, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Serve the sweet potato hash browns as a side dish for breakfast or brunch. They go well with eggs, avocados, or your favorite toppings.
