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 Wholesome Skillet that use them, including a Sweet Potato, Bacon and Spinach Chowder as well as Simple Mashed Sweet Potatoes.

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

How to Make Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash

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 it begins to soften.

Add in the apples and the browned sausage, and cook it together until the sweet potatoes are fork tender. Add some salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
