Hazelnut and Sweet Potato Hash

  • BreakfastRecipesidesvegetable
  • Sweet potatoes have become a staple in my kitchen-I love them! I don’t remember where I found the original recipe for this but I have made this several times. This time I made it a bit “spicier” by adding cinnamon and nutmeg along with the ground cloves. Also, I usually use pecans in this but had hazelnuts on hand and really liked i this way too.

    Hazelnut and Sweet Potato Hash
    3 medium sweet potatoes
    1 red onion, sliced into strips
    1/2 C hazelnuts, chopped
    1 T walnut oil
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp pepper

    Wash sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2  inch cubes.

    Place in microwavable bowl and microwave for 4-5 minutes. After they have softened, heat oil in a large pan and add potatoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the sides start to brown, then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for 5-6 more minutes until onions are soft and potatoes have browned. Serve.

    This is the perfect salty-sweet-nutty side; one of my favorites!
