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.

Sweet potatoes are really one of my favorite tubers. I have several recipes here on Cosmopolitan Cornbread that use them, including Simple Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Sweet Potato Casserole.

To Make this Recipe, You Will Need:

  • turkey breakfast sausage
  • butter
  • sweet potatoes
  • apple
  • onion
  • salt
  • pepper
  • skillet
  • slotted spoon
  • bowl
  • vegetable peeler
  • knife

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.

To start, you will brown your turkey sausage and butter (duck fat, ghee, or coconut oil can also be used) 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.

You will need about a tablespoon of drippings in the pan. If you don’t have enough, you may need to add a little additional cooking fat.

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

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into about 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 2 green apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • To begin, 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 it just tender.
  • Add in the apples and the browned sausage, then cook it together until the apples and sausage are heated through. The apples will retain a nice crunch.
  • Add some salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy your tasty sweet potato and sausage hash!

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork
