    Paleo Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage and Eggs

    Today, I am sharing with you an older recipe from the archives – Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage and Eggs. It’s one of my favorite go-to recipes to make for dinner when I don’t have much time because it takes only about 30 minutes to make. It’s so delicious and a great Paleo & Whole30 recipe! It’s so flavorful and nutritious! Made with sweet potatoes, organic ground pork sausage (you can also use turkey sausage or ground beef instead), onions, coconut oil and some salt and pepper, and rosemary for seasoning. I love that it has only a handful of ingredients and it’s so easy to prepare.

    The aroma of this hash simmering on the stove is absolutely heavenly! No wonder it’s been one of my top 10 recipes on my blog for the last 2 years.

    This sweet potato hash with sausage and eggs is a great Sunday breakfast! Sunday is usually (if we are not traveling) my only day when I can sleep in a little bit before getting ready for church, and I have more time to prepare a larger breakfast. Sunday breakfasts are usually somewhat more elaborate and filling than what we eat for breakfast during the week.

    Sweet Potato Hash

    This sweet potato hash is very versatile one pan meal too. You can also serve it for brunch or when you have family visiting.

    Hope you give it a try! I am sure you will love it!

    Hi, I’m interested to try this recipe. Can you tell me roughly how much 4 medium sweet potatoes would weigh? It seems quite a lot of what I would consider a medium sized sweet potato. Thanks.

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Donna, I am using only 2 sweet potatoes, not 4. Just enough to cover your pan with chopped potatoes.

    Lindsey

    Just made the sweet potatoe hash. SO good! And so simple. This is going to be a weekly breakfast in our home!

    This looks delicious, I have made this with normal potato, but I have never tried sweet potato. I am going to give this a try on the weekend!

    This is probably one of my top favorite recipes now! We just made it for the first time and are sharing it immediately! My picky husband loved it too!! WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE AGAIN SOON!

    Alvie Davidson

    The recipe makes no mention of green onions or shallots but the picture shows them cooking in the pan. Why?

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Alvie,
      the green onions are optional. They are just for garnish, you can add them if you want. 🙂

    My husband loved it! Usually he burps up sausage, but for some reason in this recipe he did not! We will be making this again.

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      So glad to hear that your husband loved the recipe! 🙂

    This recipe is delightful! I added 3 small chopped apples to give a little sweet crunch to complement the sweet potatoes and contrast the savory sausage and onions. This is definitely a keeper! My 5 and 7 year old are gobbling this down now 🙌🏻 (I did drizzle a little maple syrup on top to appeal to little palates). Thanks so much for posting!

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      So glad to hear you and your little ones loved the recipe, Catherine!! 🙂 Made my day!

    I stumbled upon the recipe on pinterest when I was craving sweet potatoes but wanted a different way to serve them! I have made thid many times now….too many to count. I love it so much! I also add kale, it is amazing with the kale!!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      That’s wonderful! So glad to hear that you love this recipe as much as we do! 🙂 It’s a favorite go to dinner for busy days. I love your addition of kale, I will try it next time! 🙂

    This was awesome! I’m new to the Paleo lifestyle and have been looking for easy recipes that I can make on a weeknight and that my husband (who would gladly eat a steak with Mac n cheese everynight 😐 ) would like. One thing I did just to make cleanup easier was fry the onions in ghee and then tossed in the crumbled sausage. Once that was cooked I threw in the sweet potatoes. I don’t have a cast iron skillet so I used a Dutch oven since I was able to transfer from stovetop to oven. I will definitely add this to the routine. Thank you for the recipe. I can’t wait to try more!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      That’s great! So glad that you and your husband loved the recipe! It’s one of my husband’s favorite recipes as well! I love to make it when I don’t have much time 🙂

    Wonder if there is an easy way to make this in an instant pot? Love this recipe. I’ve made it a lot but just got an instant pot and it would be great to make it all in one step. I do it without the eggs.

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Sarah! So glad to hear that you love this recipe. I also cook a lot in my instant pot but I ‘ve never thought about making this recipe in it. I will have to experiment and see how to make it in the IP. I will let you know soon.

    This looks like a great, hearty breakfast. I would honestly love it for dinner too though. Love the yellow coated cast iron!

      Delicious Meets Healthy
