  • Ready In

  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.

Pretty good, and not unhealthy. I'm sure I'll make it again. I think the next time I'll finish it with a dab of butter. The mouth feel was a little dry.

This was tasty. I doubled all of the ingredients and served it with eggs and toast as a breakfast dinner for my family.

This was wonderful. I actually used this as a "jumping off" recipe and it turned out very nicely. I added one ingredient, some diced apple. Due to making it for a crowd I increased everything(...

This was fantastic, made no changes hubby loved them. Made them twice first time with the ham. Second time forgot to buy the ham so I fried chopped bacon and it also turned out great.

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

Made it this morning and followed the recipe as is. Everyone loved it except for the cayenne. Next time I will cut it back or out. Also as suggested by another reviewer added an over easy egg on...

I made this as directed, sort of. I used hot ground sausage instead of ham. I topped it with an over easy egg. The sweet potato and runny egg yolk helped temper the heat of the sausage. It was f...

The combination of flavors works really well. I had already roasted some sweet potatoes (with salt, pepper and garlic powder) so used those and cut down on cooking time. I cut the cayenne to 1/2...

This was absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe except I used bacon instead of ham. Microwaving the sweet potatoes first made all the difference. A family favorite.
