Even when I’m not following the Whole30 plan, this Sweet Potato Sausage Hash is one of our family’s favorite recipes. It’s not only delicious, but it’s quick, easy to make, and easy on the wallet. It’s a great recipe to have in your line-up whether you are doing Whole30, Paleo, or just need a good go-to meal!
Another perk to this Whole30 Sweet Potato Sausage Hash Recipe?
It’s a one pan dish! Moms everywhere rejoice, less dishes for us! The ingredient list for this recipe, like most Whole30 approved dishes, is short. I use my secret weapon: a cast iron skillet. However, you can use any skillet/pan you prefer.
How to Make this Sweet Potato Sausage Hash Recipe
It start’s with dicing the sweet potatoes and onions. Start with peeling your sweet potatoes, then dicing them into uniform-ish cubes. I say “ish” because it doesn’t need to be perfect, but you want the diced pieces close in size so the cook is the same throughout. Next, dice your onion the same way. Easy peasy.
Next in your cast iron skillet, or any large/deep pan of your choice, brown your sausage. If you want this recipe to be Whole30 approved, you’ll need to be sure you use a Whole30 approved type of sausage, like Aidell’s for example. Otherwise, just use your favorite sausage like Jimmy Dean or whatever you like.
When your sausage is almost browned, add in the onions and cook until they are softened.
Once your sausage and onion mixture is ready, remove it from the pan and set it aside in a bowl. Now it’s time for a hefty tablespoon of coconut oil.
You can use any oil you’d like, but coconut oil keeps this Whole30 compliant. Also, it gives this sausage and sweet potato hash recipe a sweet taste that really compliments the savory sausage.
Put that generous tablespoon of coconut oil into your pan, along with your sweet potatoes and add salt and pepper (to taste). I always season with salt and pepper, but when cooking for a family I always remind myself of this: you can add more later but you can’t take it out.
Now you’ll want to cover your potatoes for a bit which will help them cook through, and stir occasionally. Once the potatoes start to cook through, I remove the lid so they can get browned up.
Finishing the Sweet Potato Sausage Hash
Once the sweet potatoes have cooked up nicely, it’s time to finish this dish off. Add your sausage and onion mixture back in and stir to combine.
Now you have a decision to make, and for me, it’s one that varies. If I am in a rush, all eggs go on top and the pan goes right into the oven.
If I have a little bit more time, I will cook over easy eggs to order for my fam. I prefer to do it the latter way because then the left-over hash can be stored without egg in it. And it’s so good left-over. However, it’s easier to just throw those eggs on top and pop that baby in the oven. Sometimes easy just wins by default.
If you choose to put the eggs on top, literally just crack them open on top of your hash, add salt and pepper to taste, and then pop in the oven at 350 degrees for a few minutes until your eggs have cooked up nicely. Try to keep those yolks runny, because that runny yolk mixed with the hash is just magic in your mouth.
If you decide to make your eggs separately, fry them up in a separate pan (or remove the hash and fry them up in the same pan), and then you can place beside or on top of each person’s hash portion on their plate.
Sprinkle with parsley to finish and look fancy. That’s it, my friend, dinner is served and your family is going to love it!
This Whole30 approved sweet potato sausage hash is great left-over! Cook up a big batch to have for dinner and use left-overs for breakfast throughout the week!
