I was looking at my last sweet potato. There it sat, without an idea in the world. I was hungry for something a little different. Many people think sweet potatoes are a boring vegetable, but they really are quite versatile. So, I got to thinking. Bingo! Diced and Pan Fried Sweet Potatoes! So simple, yet nutritious and comforting, so I got to work.
First thing I grabbed was my cast iron skillet. Love that thing! I put it on the stove over medium heat to preheat it. It was preheating while I scrubbed, trimmed and diced my sweet potato.
I added 1 Tbsp of Avacado oil (you can use whatever oil you like) and 1 T butter to my hot pan. Swirled it around a bit. Once the oil was hot, I carefully added the sweet potatoes. I covered them for the first 5 minutes or so, then tossed them around and finished them without the lid until they were soft and golden brown.
This is how awesome the looked…
I Love how food browns so nicely in my cast iron. You can check out my info on caring for cast iron here. There are so many options to choose from when selecting cast iron, you can find any size that fits your needs here.
