    1       md           Sweet potato (about 1 lb)
    1       lb           Ham
      1/2   ts           Ground white pepper
    1       t            Salt
    6       tb           Butter or margarine
    8                    Poached eggs
    4       tb           Sour cream
   PREHEAT OVEN TO 250F. Wash but don't peel the sweet
   potato. Shred potato on fine blade of a shredder or
   food processor. Place in mixing bowl and set aside.
   Finely chop ham; pulse using puree blade of food
   processor. Add ham to the shredded potato. Add salt
   and pepper and mix well. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a
   non-stick 6-inch skillet over medium heat. Add
   one-quarter of the potato-ham mixture. Cook about 4
   minutes, pressing down gently to compact the hash as
   it cooks. Flip the hash patty and cook another 5
   minutes. Add more butter if necessary. Repeat with
   remaining mixture; add more butter to skillet as
   needed. As each hash patty is done, transfer to oven
   to keep warm. Place 2 poached eggs on each serving.
   Garnish with a dollop of sour cream.
