2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cooked center sliced country ham, cut into ½ inch dice
½ of an onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 red pepper, cut into ½-inch dice
2 Gala apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
1 tablespoon minced fresh flat leaf parsley, leaves only
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, toss the sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon of oil, salt, and black pepper until well coated. Pour the mixture onto a foil lined baking sheet pan and spread into a single layer. Place in the oven and cook until tender and golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and keep warm.
In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Add the onions and peppers and cook until the onion is translucent and the pepper begins to soften, stirring occasionally, about 6-8 minutes. Add the apples and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer the ham-apple mixture to the bowl of potatoes and toss.
Add the sage and parsley, taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed. Toss and serve.
