These sweet potato hashbrowns are so healthy and delicious! Eat them for breakfast or any time of the day!
Once you try homemade hashbrowns, you’ll never want to eat the frozen ones from the bag! And if you want to make classic hashbrowns a bit healthier, try making them with sweet potatoes!
These sweet potato hashbrowns are mouthwatering! Can you imagine eating them for breakfast with fried egg and sliced avocado?
Making your own sweet potato hashbrowns is really easy. I’m using the exact same technique for sweet potato hashbrowns as for regular white potato hashbrowns: shred potato in a food processor and cook in oil, undisturbed, until golden-brown on both sides.
Despite the same cooking technique, sweet potato hashbrowns never flip cleanly like one giant pancake (even though regular hashbrowns often do). Below is the picture of REGULAR potato hashbrowns recipe (not sweet potatoes) – see how shredded potatoes stayed together? Won’t happen with sweet potatoes!
This is because white potatoes have starch that gets released and “glues” the shreds together, and sweet potatoes don’t have it. Sweet potato hashbrowns get flipped in pieces, and that’s how it’s supposed to be :)
These sweet potato hashbrowns taste so yummy, you’ll love them! There are so many ways of eating sweet potatoes, and adding another delicious cooking method to your kitchen repertoire always helps!
How To Make Sweet Potato Hashbrowns
Peel the sweet potato.
Cut it into pieces.
Put the sweet potato in a food processor fitted with a shredder disk and shred it. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use the box grater (the side with the largest holes).
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a thin layer of shredded sweet potatoes.
Cook the sweet potato hashbrowns without stirring for 4 minutes (or until the bottom is golden-brown). Carefully flip the sweet potatoes with a spatula.
Cook the sweet potato hashbrowns on another side until golden-brown as well (about 4 minutes). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
