Oh my gosh. I became a member on food.com just to review this recipe. I didn't follow the recipe exactly but I did follow the ingredients exactly and it was fantastic. I love this stuff. I'm going to make this again next week. The combination of the sweet potato and regular potato plus the delicious brown sugar and then the bacon. It was fantastic!!!!

We LOVED these hashbrowns!!! I followed your directions to the letter and they turned out amazingly delicious. The combination of sweet and savory flavors worked well together. The bacon and nuts were great touch. I served them with baked ham, collard greens, and cornbread. Good job, Nurse Di.

This recipe was so easy and good! I didn't have any sweet potatoes on hand, so, I used 2 regular potatoes and followed the everything else ot a 'T'! Will definitely try this again with the sweet potato. Thanks for posting NurseDi!
