Baked Sweet Potato Hash Browns
When I made my potato pancake recipe, I also wanted to try using sweet potatoes. I never thought about making sweet potato hash browns and I wondered if I could make them a bit healthier using coconut oil.
Roasted Sweet Potato
I think roasting really brings out the full sweetness of this potato instead of frying in a cast iron pan, so I wanted to make this gluten-free dish in the oven. Using shredded sweet potatoes would also ensure that they would get crispy, especially if spread on a sheet pan.
