Confession… Breakfast is a challenge for me. I have both an egg and gluten sensitivity, which eliminates a lot of breakfast possibilites. My go-to recently has been Organic Valley’s new grassfed plain yogurt. I usually make this for both me and my daughter and add a little maple syrup, fruit, nuts, and chia seeds. While we both like this for breakfast, I have gotten pretty tired of the same thing every morning. I’ve made breakfast hashes in the past for potlucks, but decided to make a big batch for us to eat on throughout the week. It has been such a nice change from our yogurt mornings. I prepped for this on Sunday evening and finished everything up Monday morning. And guys… this recipe is delicious. I’ve gotten rave reviews about it every time I take it somewhere to share.
Sweet Potato & Sausage Breakfast Hash
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 3.5 tbsp. coconut oil, divided and melted
- 2.5 tbsp. maple syrup
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 lb. ground breakfast sausage (I used mild sausage from PTB Farm)
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 5 c. chopped kale, stems removed
- 1/2 cup chicken broth (homemade broth recipe here)
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
- Put the diced sweet potatoes in a large bowl and toss in 2.5 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted), maple syrup, salt, pepper, and paprika. Spread the diced potatoes out onto the baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes.
- In a large shallow saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil on medium heat and cook the sausage and onions until the meat is browned.
- Once the onions and meat are cooked, add the kale and saute for an additional 3-4 minutes until kale is wilted and soft.
- Add the sweet potatoes to the pan and toss to combine all ingredients.
- Pour in the chicken broth and allow to simmer together for 5 minutes and serve.
Side Note: I am often asked where I find a lot of my Organic ingredients. I buy from a combination of places including our local farmer’s market, Costco, Whole Foods, and Thrive Market. If you are in an area that doesn’t have a Whole Foods or Costco, I highly recommend Thrive Market. It is like Costco and Sam’s club in the sense that you pay a yearly membership and then get organic items for discounted prices. There really is a huge savings and I order from there about once a month. Use my referral link to get 15% off your first purchase.
