Sweet Potato Hash With Black Forest Ham

Flavorful Black Forest ham subtly enriches the hash without taking over. Serve this alongside chicken, or with eggs for a light meal on its own.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1   tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1  
    small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1   pound
    sweet potatoes, (about 2 medium), peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1/4   teaspoon
  • 1/3   cup
    finely diced Black Forest ham, (2 ounces)
  • 1   teaspoon
    chopped fresh thyme
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add sweet potatoes and salt. Cook, stirring often, until the potatoes are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in ham and thyme; cook, stirring, until the ham is heated through, about 1 minute more.
