  1. Place sweet potato in a microwave-safe bowl; add water and salt. Microwave until partially softened, 2 to 3 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until slightly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir sweet potato, ham, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and salt into onion; cover skillet with a lid. Cook sweet potato mixture, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are cooked through, about 10 minutes; sprinkle with brown sugar. Cook and stir until brown sugar is dissolved, 1 to 2 more minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If the mixture begins to stick to the skillet, add a few tablespoons of water.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Made this a few weeks ago as a side dish for my family .. It was a HIT !! Will definitely make again. The only change to the recipe was using bacon instead of ham steak

This is terrific. Try it. Did not have cayenne in the house so I substituted Adobo spices and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Gave it a touch of heat and flavors in the Adobo spices where great wi...

Simple and tasty. We prefer this without the added salt or sugar. The ham and sweet potatoes are sufficient. Loved the kick the cayenne gave.

Delicious. Used recipe exactly as written. Just added a bit of water while cooking to prevent sticking. Served with over easy eggs on top. Husband loved it. Its a keeper. Good for breakfast, lun...

It came out nice. I used it as a side dish to rice and peas and steamed broccoli.
