    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 onions (brown medium)
    • 2 teaspoons oil
    • 1 lb sweet potato (peeled and cubed)
    • 1/2 tablespoon butter
    • salt and pepper (to taste)


    1. 1
      Peel onions, cut in half and finely slice so you have half moon shaped circles.
    2. 2
      Put into a medium frypan and drizzle with oil and massage the oil in to break up the half rings.
    3. 3
      Cover frypan and cook over a low to moderate heat giving a stir occasionally until a nice golden colour (about 30 to 40 minutes), the longer you take the sweeter the onion will be.
    4. 4
      Put sweet potatoes in a pot of cold water and season with a little salt and bring to the boil and cook till tender.
    5. 5
      When potatoes are cook, drain and give a good shake, put in butter and mash (I used a potato masher) till you get the consistency you like (I like a slightly lumpy texture).
    6. 6
      Add your caramelised onions and mix in well (I just used a fork) and season with salt and pepper to taste.

      Made this for dinner a couple of nights ago... did a single serving since I'm now the only one in that eats sweet potatoes. I really enjoyed how the caramelized onions perked things up. I prefer my sweet potato brown sugar or marshmallows, so this is a perfect recipe for me. I did make one tiny change, and that was to add about a Tbs. of milk as well to the potato when mashing it. Will definitely be making this again in the future as a side for chicken, turkey or fish. Thanks for sharing this recipe I'm Pat. Made and reviewed for the August 2013 AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

      These are so good! I love sweet potatoes and caramelised onions so putting them together was perfect. Made as written and served with meatloaf. Definately going to make these again! Made for Zaar Stars.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap # 59* Sweet potatoes cooked in record time and onions caramelized when ready to serve. This is a new delicious method for us, since we mostly bake. A great Winter-time dish. Thanks for posting, Pat.
