Sweet Potato, Apple & Bacon Hash


Slightly adapted from Anne Burrell’s recipe at Foodnetwork.com

2 garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
3 to 6 slices thick cut bacon, cut into lardons *
1 large onion, cut in 1/2-inch dice
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice
4 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
1/2 cup green pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

1) Coat a large saute pan with olive oil. Add the bacon and put the pan over medium heat. When the bacon has started to get crispy and brown, add the onions, season with salt and saute until the onions are very soft and aromatic. Add the apples and the scallion whites and saute for 3 to 4 minutes.

*To reduce the bacon fat in this dish, start with cooked, drained bacon and add it in step 3.  It will be less rich, and still be delicious.

2) Meanwhile, put the sweet potatoes in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt to taste. Toss to coat and arrange them on a baking sheet. Roast the sweet potatoes until they are soft but not mushy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and reserve until done with step 1.

3) Stir in the sweet potatoes, and saute until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and starting to become crispy, about 7 to 8 minutes.

4) Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the scallion greens and pumpkin seeds.

Sour cream on top is nice.  :o)
