I love this recipe because it is a very multi-purpose one. Since it is an easy hash with sausage, you could serve it for breakfast. But the sweet potatoes and apple make it hearty enough for supper too. Whatever time of day you decide to make it, you will love it.

How to Make Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash

This recipe uses two sweet potatoes that you will peel and dice into about 1/2 inch pieces.

When you make Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash, you can use your favorite bulk breakfast sausage. I like using my Homemade Breakfast Sausage. It only takes a couple minutes to mix together and is delicious!

To start, you will brown your sausage in a skillet or other shallow pan. Crumble it a bit as it cooks. Once it is browned, use a slotted spoon to scoop it out to a bowl. Set it aside for a bit.

If you are using homemade sausage, it may be very lean. You will need about a tablespoon of drippings in the pan. If you don’t have enough, you may need to add a little ghee or coconut oil.

If your sausage was bountiful in the drippings, remove the excess.

Cook your diced sweet potato and onion together until they are tender.

Add in the apples and the browned sausage, and cook it together until the apples and sausage are heated through. Add some salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
