Sweet Potato Hash with Pecans


1-2 sweet potatoes, diced

1-2 regular potatoes (any variety works), diced

1 small onion, diced

1-2 garlic cloves, minced (or garlic salt)

1/4 to 1/2 chopped pecans

1-2 tablespoons cooking fat

Salt and pepper to taste


1Heat cooking fat in skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat.

2 Once hot, add in sweet potatoes and regular potatoes, cover and cook for 5-10 minutes until softened. If needed, add in a bit of water to help steam.

3 Remove cover and add in onions, mixing them into the potatoes. Continue to cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until potatoes start to brown, 5-10 minutes. Mix in garlic and pecans and continue to cook until pecans start to brown 3-5 minutes. Watch closely (and turn down heat if needed) so that the pecans do not burn.

4 Salt and pepper to taste and serve.

5 These are great reheated the next day and used as a stuffing for an omelette.
