I have a confession, I’m not a food blogger — just a mom who loves to cook. When I started out, my recipes were good, but my pictures were bad. Really bad.
Since then, I’ve learned a little about photography and improved some (I hope), but I’m still just a mom who cooks and sometimes, I get tired of writing elaborate descriptions of recipes, because, really… who reads those anyway?
Rather than attempting to write a fancy description about how delicious, delectable, perfectly balanced, and ______ (insert other over-used food word here) this recipe is, I’ll let its simplicity speak for itself.
Sausage & sweet potato hash isn’t fancy, and I wouldn’t serve it at a dinner party (unless it was a dinner party centered on watching sports), but it is a quick meal option that my children absolutely love and that is super simple to make.
Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash Recipe
Yield 4 servings
Simple and delicious -- enough said.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into large chunks.
- Place them on a baking sheet.
- Drizzle with the coconut oil and sprinkle with spices.
- Toss to coat.
- Roast the sweet potatoes until they are soft but not mushy, about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and set aside.
- While the sweet potatoes are cooking, cook the sausage in a medium skillet.
- Core the apples and chop the onions and apples.
- When the sausage has started to get crispy and brown, add the onions and saute until the onions are very soft and translucent.
- Add the apples saute an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
- Pour the sausage, onion, apple mixture over the sweet potatoes and return them to the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft and starting to brown.
You can substitute chicken, grass fed meat, or other protein for the chicken if you'd like.
