Fried Sweet Potatoes
4-5 Large Sweet Potatoes
2 Tablespoons Light Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Butter or Butter Substitute
3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
Wash peel and slice sweet potatoes into 1/8- 1/4 inch thick slices ( thin slices cook faster). In medium size skillet ( 8-10 inch), heat oil on high until hot, add butter and potato slices. Spreading out evenly over skillet. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir, flipping over potatoes so they will cook on both sides. Cover and let fry another 3-4 minutes. Take lid off and check potatoes with a fork, they should be fork tender. If you can insert the fork without resistance, then add brown sugar sprinkling evenly over potatoes and stir. Turn heat to medium and cook uncovered for another 2-3 minutes to brown potatoes. Stir flipping potatoes again to brown evenly. When done remove from heat and serve.

Looks so yummy! I did not know that you could “fry” sweet potatoes. I am going to get some today that sounds really good on a cold day like this. Sweet potatoes taste much like pumpkin to me so am anxious to try this! Thanks for posting!
Thanks, Carol. This is an old recipe passed down from my Grandmother, to my Mom then me. For years I thought everyone fried their sweet potatoes. 😄
