Sweet Potato & Sausage Breakfast Hash

Sweet Potato & Sausage Breakfast Hash

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 

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Once the onions and meat are cooked, add the kale and saute for an additional 3-4 minutes until kale is wilted and soft.
  5. Add the sweet potatoes to the pan and toss to combine all ingredients.
  6. 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.

Kindergarten 2020 Homeschool Plan
Kindergarten 2020 Homeschool Plan

July 29, 2020

Well. Here we are, friends. I'm going to be a homeschooling mom for the 2020-2021 school year. This was not an easy decision. Before I had kids I thought I might homeschool them one day. I quickly changed my mind when I became an actual parent. Even with a background in education (elementary school teacher and librarian), I realized that I didn't want to homeschool and would most likely be sending my kids to public school. Then COVID...

Unlearning + Learning: An Anti-Racist Book Club

June 11, 2020

Over the past months, I've learned that I have a lot to learn concerning the history of our country and the issues of systemic racism. I've recognized that I, too, have biases that I was unaware of. Waking up to this reality has felt a little like grieving or at least going through the grief process. It hit me hard in the beginning and I was sad and angry. Then I didn't know what to do with the pain of it and was overwhelmed by it all. And now I'm accepting the fact that I have a lot of work to do and that this is a marathon, not a sprint...

Book Review: Becoming by Michelle Obama
Book Review: Becoming by Michelle Obama

June 05, 2020

"For me, becoming isn't about arriving somewhere and achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end. I became a mother, but I still have a lot to learn from and give to my children. I became a wife, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and make a life with another person. I have become, by certain measures, a person of power, and yet there are moments still when I feel insecure and unheard. It's all a process, steps...
