  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespooons butter or olive oil, for frying


  • Peel sweet potatoes and shred using a box grater. Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl and add onion and garlic. Stir gently to toss. Sprinkle with the flour, salt, and pepper. Stir gently again.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil in a large non-stick skillet or cast iron pan over medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup measure, place 3 to 4 mounds (patties) of the sweet potato mixture in the hot skillet.
  • Gently press down with a spatula and cook for 3-4 minutes. Turn and cook 3-4 minutes on the other side, watching carefully to avoid scorching. (The hash brown patties should be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.)
  • Add more butter to the pan and continue cooking in batches. Keep cooked hash brown patties warm on a baking sheet in a 200-degree oven while cooking the remaining batches.
