Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

1 medium sweet potato (about 1 lb.)

1 lb. ham

1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

1 teaspoon Salt

6 tablespoon butter or margarine

8 poached eggs

4 tablespoons sour cream

Preheat oven to 250° F. Wash but don’t peel the sweet potato. Shred potato on fine blade of a shredder or food processor. Place in mixing bowl and set aside.

Finely chop ham; pulse using puree blade of food processor. Add ham to the shredded potato. Add salt and pepper and mix well.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a non-stick 6-inch skillet over medium heat. Add one-quarter of the potato-ham mixture. Cook about 4 minutes, pressing down gently to compact the hash as it cooks. Flip the hash patty and cook another 5 minutes. Add more butter if necessary.

Repeat with remaining mixture; add more butter to skillet as needed. As each hash patty is done, transfer to oven to keep warm.

Place 2 poached eggs on each serving. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream.
