One of my latest obsessions is hash browns; Andrew and I go to nearby diner pretty much 2-3 times a week and I always order the hash browns. This morning, I woke up and immediately decided I needed my fix. Then, I looked out the window and realized it was raining! So, I thought I should make my own, except I only had sweet potatoes... no matter, I decided to make sweet potato hash browns! I followed Emeril's recipe, which calls for diced bacon and onion (I omitted the garlic) and man, am I glad I made these! They were absolutely delicious and easy to make, despite the fact that they do make a bit of a mess in the kitchen.
Fried Sweet Potato Hashbrowns
What you'll need:
- 1 2 medium sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and grated
