Sweet Potato Skillet Hash (+ GIVEAWAY)

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  Laughing with family, eating with friends, whatever it is you do on Thanksgiving, I hope you did it well.

As I took into account all I'm thankful for, this blog made the list.  It's a way I can get my creative juices flowing and it's a way to help others in the "what's for dinner" department.  And as a way to say thank you to all the people who follow this little blog, I'm going to GIVEAWAY this amazing Anthropologie Apron.

Don't you want to look super cute as you get your holiday baking on?  You know you do!  This apron ties at the neck and in the back, and it's a "one-size" size.  Tag still on.

TO ENTER: leave a comment about your favorite holiday dish here on the blog OR on the HeartyHelpings facebook page. (but please NOT both)
To enter a SECOND time, share this link with a note about the giveaway on your facebook page.  Just let me know you did, so I can count you twice.

GIVEAWAY is open until midnight on Thursday the 29th, and I will announce the random winner Friday morning.  I will ship anywhere in the US.

And now for a very quick recipe in case you bought too many sweet potatoes for your Thanksgiving dinner!

This was an amazing and quick side dish.  I served it with the stuffed green peppers and it paired so well.  I got the recipe over here.

I could have eaten the whole skillet all by myself -- but alas, all 3 of my boys loved it just as much!  The oldest little boy even ate the onions in there!  I was a happy momma!

I love sweet potatoes, so it's nice to have another way to cook them and snazz them up a little.

Sweet Potato Skillet Hash
  • 1 large sweet potato, washed and diced (1/4 inch)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 c chopped sweet onion
  • 1/2 large green pepper, chopped
  • 2 t minced garlic
  • 1/4 t each salt and pepper
  • 1 t Italian seasoning
-- Cook (microwave is easiest) cubed potatoes.
-- Meanwhile, saute the onion, pepper, and garlic in the olive oil in a large skillet, 5 minutes.
-- Add in the sweet potatoes and cook another 5 minutes until onions and peppers are soft and well cooked.


  1. I love grilled asparagus!
    It's not my hubby's favorite so I have to save it for the holidays!

  2. I make a red and green layered Jello salad, and it's not Christmas without it!

  3. Wow! Adorable apron and the hash looks delicious! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sarah!

    My favorite dish for Thanksgiving has to be the stuffing! At Christmas we always do an appetizer table and I love the homemade fresh salsa and guacamole.

  4. I think it's appropriate to comment on a post about sweet potato hash that my favorite Thanksgiving dish has been and always will be sweet potatoes. In my family, we serve them simply with a dash of cinnamon and salt. No marshmallows to ruin their healthy and delicious flavors!

  5. My fav holiday dish would be pumpkin pie. To eat and to make. :)

  6. Hmmm...hard to pick just one, especially as some work in conjuction with each other! (Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes AND gravy! ;) ) But, one that is sentimental & yummy in my book is my Grandma's chocolate pudding and whipped cream topped pie.

  7. I look forward to these cheesy potatoes my mom makes. They are even good as leftovers! :) That apron is so cute!

  8. My favorite would have to be my sister's pear and candied walnut salad. With tons of balsamic vinaigrette!!!

  9. Thanksgiving tradition for us includes a chinese chicken salad. When we were first married, my husband scoffed at including such a thing in a traditional thanksgiving dinner, but that was before he had tasted it. Now he complains if we don't have it.

  10. I really love sweet potatoes with marshmallows and almost any kind of pie.

  11. My favorite holiday dish is always the homemade fresh green bean casserole but the mashed sweet potato is slowly becoming my new favorite. :)
