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 shredded sweet potato hash browns and I wondered if I could make them a bit healthier using coconut oil

Using a box grater, I shredded one sweet potato which was enough for four servings. You could use a food processor to grate the potato if you want to.

Roasted Sweet Potato

When making sweet potato recipes, I've used them in soup and have also added them to crockpot BBQ chicken, but I mostly just roast them in the oven

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.

Shredded Sweet Potatoes As a Side Dish

My Friend Linda of Life on Summer Hill planned a beautiful nursing graduation party for her daughter and asked if there was a recipe for shredded sweet potatoes on our site that she could use as a side dish. 

The only recipe I could think of was our potato pancake recipe, which did require to have cheesecloth on hand to drain completely. 

I loved that Linda improvised and used these shredded sweet potatoes as a side dish! I think that is brilliant, don't you?!
