Sweet Potato Hash Brown

By Ange's Table

Sweet potatoes are something that I used to think about only during Thanksgiving time.  But then I developed so many allergies in my early 30’s, and could not eat night shade vegetables any longer. White potatoes are in the night shade family.  I have been able to reintroduce some night shades, but unfortunately, potato has not been one of them. 

So whats a girl to do when she wants that starchy side to go with dinner?  No more fries, or hash browns, or chips?  

It took me some time, but then I realized that I could use sweet potatoes in place of white potato. Boy was I a happy girl that day.

These hash browns are so fast and easy, and go with any meal.  Want some hash browns with your eggs, done.  Need a different potato side to go with that steak.  Here you go.

Sweet Potato Hash Brown

  • 1 sweet potato, grated
  • 1/2 medium onion, grated
  • 3/4 tsp seasoned salt mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-2 Tbsp tapioca starch
  • oil for frying

Mix all ingredients together. 

Let rest a few minutes so that the starch can absorb any extra liquid.

Heat oil in a pan. 

Form into patties, fry on each side 4-5 minutes, until golden brown.

Sprinkle with seasoned salt mix after frying.
