What do you do when you are going to one of the hottest clubs in Denver to sample new drinks? You go to your friends house to eat sweet potato hash browns and Mickey Mouse pancakes for dinner. My friend Laura is an account representative for Hpnotiq and she is running a contest among some of her accounts to see which club can create the best Hpnotiq cocktail. I am fortunate enough to know Laura and thus fortunate enough to be the official taste tester. I have to admit I don’t really like Hpnotiq because it’s rather sweet but I was surprised at how good a few of the drinks were. Oh, and the hash browns were good too.
- 2 large Sweet Potatoes
- 3 sprigs fresh Rosemary, finely chopped
- 3 cloves Garlic, minced
- Sea Salt and Pepper
- Vegetable or Olive Oil for frying
Peel and grate sweet potatoes. Heat a large skillet with a few tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add a large handful of grated sweet potatoes and half of the garlic. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Let set and brown in the pan for 10-15 minutes then flip to brown the opposite side. Turn the heat down if you find the potatoes are burning and not browning.
Garnish with fresh chopped rosemary.
Laura just moved into a new condo and never cooks. When I asked for a knife to chop the rosemary, she gave me a butter knife. Maybe I should get her a knife as a house-warming gift.
This may have been Laura’s first time making pancakes…from a box.
