September is the beginning of apple picking time in my area. It extends for a few months and I do enjoy picking and cooking with apples. I like to use them in a variety of dishes and not just desserts. For example this hash makes a perfect side dish to pork or chicken while combining the apple with a well loved sweet potato.
Full time 30 minutes
1 large apple (any variety) cut into eights and sliced thin.
1 small white onion, cut in half and sliced
3 small width sweet potatoes, cut into round 1/4" thick
1/4 cup butter, divided into 4 pieces
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
In a saute pan heat 1 portion butter with half the olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add in onion and saute 3-5 minutes or until the edges begin to golden and onion has become soft.
Add in remaining olive oil and 1 portion butter along with sweet potato rounds. Stir or toss to combine and let cook 8-10 minutes or until potatoes begin to soften at edges.
Add in 1 portion of butter and apples. Stir or toss to combine and reduce heat to medium-low. Allow mixture to cook 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.
Add in final portion of butter and allow to melt, stirring or tossing the pan to fully incorporate.
Allow to cook just until butter is absorbed.
Move to serving bowl, serve immediately. Cheers.
