Sweet Potato Home Fries

Sweet Potato Home Fries


4 small (5-ounce) sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2‑inch cubes (leave skins on if desired, for a little extra fiber)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  sugar
  Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)


Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until barely tender, 6‑8 minutes. Drain well in colander and pat dry with paper towels.

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until just starting to simmer. Pat potato cubes dry again with paper towels; add to skillet. Let cook undisturbed 3 minutes; turn and continue cooking until crisped and browned on most sides, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, sugar, and cayenne, if using; serve immediately.
