Serve up these delicious Sweet Potato Hash Browns for breakfast with some eggs of choice. It’s an amazing combination.
After the success of my Syn Free Crispy Golden Hash Browns, I wanted to create some Sweet Potato ones. I experimented by trying various different techniques and think this is by far the best result for Oven Baked Sweet Potato Hash Browns.
I already have my Spiralled Sweet Potato Hash which is great for breakfast and it syn free, but when you want more of a Pattie type hash brown, then this is the recipe for you.
The only difficult part to these Sweet Potato Hash Browns, is grating the darn sweet potato (think of that body magic, working those arms lol), but of you want it grated quick then a food processor like this awesome Nutra Ninja Complete Kitchen System will grate it effortlessly for you.
I absolutely love mine, it has amazing Auto IQ technology, meaning it will blend to a unique pattern depending on what it is you are making. For grating, you use the food processor bowl, add the grater attachment, and just push in the sweet potato and viola it is grated in seconds.
Once grated, you need to squeeze out any excess liquid from the sweet potato, I do this in batches. You won’t get as much liquid as you would a regular white potato, but removing any excess liquid really helps them bind together.
To make the Sweet Potato Hash Browns, you need an egg white and a little cornstarch (or arrowroot flour or tapioca starch will work too). Then add your seasoning, form into hash browns. I use my handy egg rings to get the perfect round shape. But you could also do it in a more rustic way with your hands. Form it together tightly so that it stays together when you bake.
These do take quite a little while to cook, but you can make these in advance if you are rushed for time and just add to a plate in the fridge and then heat up in the oven when you are ready for them. Although I give a set time for these, I do recommend keeping a close eye on them once you flip over, as ovens can vary.
These sweet potato hash browns can also be frozen, I recommend part baking, just to get them to hold together and then allow to cool and freeze, by placing on a tray lined with parchment paper, once frozen, you can then add to a freezer bag or container and then all you have to do is finish off the baking from frozen – nice and easy.
I like to serve these with eggs, cooked sunny side up or oven medium (so good) and occasionally will add bacon or sausage and some of this balsamic tomatoes and spinach. They are also great with a little cheese added into the mixture as part of your Healthy Extra A choice.
