Pre-Thanksgiving Fall Hash

  • This was one of my favorite pre-Thanksgiving dishes from last year. I made it for a family dinner and it was a total hit; we could have finished off  the entire dish!
  • This fall-flavored hash is so good! The combination of the semi-crisp and tart apple bits merge in your mouth with the caramelized sweet potato and the saltiness of the bacon converges with the sweet soft onion. You will surely fall in love with this fall hash, it defiantly leaves you wanting more! 

  • Thanksgiving Sweet Potato, Bacon and Apple Hash
  • Anne Burrell, Food Network

  • 2 garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 to 6 slices thick cut bacon, cut into lardons ( I used Turkey Bacon)
  • 1 large onion, cut in 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup green pumpkin seeds (Pepita's), toasted 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, add the sweet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, to taste. Toss to coat and arrange them on a baking sheet. Roast the sweet potatoes until they are soft but not mushy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and reserve.

Coat a large saute pan with olive oil. Add the bacon and put the pan over medium heat. When the bacon has started to get crispy and brown, add the onions, season with salt and saute until the onions are very soft and aromatic. Add the apples and the scallion whites and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sweet potatoes, and saute until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and starting to become crispy, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the scallion greens and pumpkin seeds.
