Sweet Potato Hash Browns


 6-8 cups finely shredded sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon arrowroot flour

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon each: paprika & pepper

1/2 teaspoon each: garlic powder & dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

about 3 tablespoons ghee


heat a large griddle or flat bottom pan to 350.

wrap shredded potatoes in a large kitchen towel or paper towels & squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

place potatoes & all seasonings in a large bowl & toss, thoroughly coating potatoes in seasoning.

working in batches, melt very small amounts of ghee on griddle & place potatoes on griddle.  press with the back of a spatula to flatten.  resist the urge to move them for 5-7 minutes to let them get golden brown on the bottom side, then flip in as large of portions as possible & cook another 5-7 minutes to brown evenly.

serve immediately.
