Sweet Potato & Ham Hash Browns
Serves 8
Not a "hashed brown" in the usual sense, sweet potatoes & ham offer a unique twist on an old favorite. If you wish, adding more ham, or even bacon can make this side dish an entree to enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 2 lbs. Sweet Potatoes
  2. ¼ cup Vegetable Oil
  3. 1 cup Sweet Onion, Chopped
  4. 1 Tbsp. Fresh Garlic, Chopped
  5. 1 cup Smoked Honey Ham, Julienned
  6. 2 Tbsp. Chives, Chopped
  7. To Taste Salt & Pepper
Instructions
  1. Rub whole sweet potatoes (with skin on) with 2 TBSP of the oil and then roast in a 375 F oven until tender. Cool, remove skins and dice into ½” cubes. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, sauté the onions and garlic on medium heat in the remaining oil until softened.
  3. Turn the heat to medium high and add the sweet potatoes and ham. Allow the mixture to rest, unstirred for 2 minutes at a time to promote browning, then gently fold over and repeat until the potato mixture has some color. Avoid stirring to keep potato pieces intact.
  4. Just before serving, season with chives, salt and pepper.
