Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Yield – 1 serving

1/2 medium sweet potato, shredded
1 tiny, tiny onion (or 1/4 of a small onion), sliced thin
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon bacon fat
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat skillet to medium low.  Add 1/2 bacon fat,

You don't keep bacon fat in your fridge? Your grandmother probably did. You don't want to disappoint your grandmother, do you? DO you?

once melted, add sliced onions and a pinch of salt and lightly caramelize, about 2-3 minutes.

Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.  Add potatoes in 1 thin layer and season generously.

Potatoes without salt taste like nothing.  (Remember though that the bacon fat is salty) Cook for 2-3 minutes until bottom is browned.  Pick up with spatula, add second half of the bacon fat, flip hash browns, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until browned on the other side.

If you’re me, put fresh ricotta on top.

Add a fried for good measure.
