A simple and sweet treat that packs a lot of flavor. It makes a great alternate breakfast side in place of the standard hash browned potatoes. Try it as a breakfast side with scrambled eggs! Sweet potatoes let off a lot of water as they cook, so it may be necessary to drain the hash before serving.

  • Increase heat to medium-high; cook and stir until brown sugar caramelizes on surface of the sweet potato cubes, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir zucchini into the sweet potato mixture; cook and stir until zucchini is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain excess liquid to serve.

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Substituted margarine and maple syrup for the butter and brown sugar and added low-sodium honey ham for a one-dish lunch or light dinner.

Just made this for my family and my kids went crazy for it. Very good and not overly sweet. I only used 1 tbsp of brown sugar and added a dash off cinnamon.

I added more zucchini ( personal preference) and added some spicy seasoning. I really didn't care for this as a dinner side dish but had the leftovers topped with scrambled eggs at breakfast and that was terrific

I had alot of zucchini in my garden this year and wanted to try something different. I did use only two tablespoons butter and one tablespoon of brown sugar. I liked this alot. I served it with dinner as a side dish.
