    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!

    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. πŸ™‚

    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.

    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 πŸ™ŒπŸ» (I did drizzle a little maple syrup on top to appeal to little palates). Thanks so much for posting!

      So glad to hear you and your little ones loved the recipe, Catherine!! πŸ™‚ 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!!

    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 πŸ™‚

    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.

    Marrrr

    not sure how “healthy” this is but it sure does look delicious

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Marrr,
      what ingredient exactly wouldn’t you consider healthy? Sweet potatoes, onions, eggs, farm raised organic sausage, or coconut oil?
      To most people they are all healthy. Of course, if you have a dietary restriction because of a health issue, you might not consider any of these healthy, but that doesn’t apply to everybody.
      Even though there are only 5 main ingredients, it is very delicious and flavorful! Hope you give it a try. πŸ™‚

    Karyn Price

    I just made this and it was AMAZING. I made it just exactly like the instructions told me to except I added extra egg whites around the hash for protein.

    Question, how many servings is this recipe?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Karyn! Makes me so happy to hear that you liked it! πŸ™‚
      The recipe is 4 servings.

    Deb

    Do you cover it when it goes in the oven?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Deb, I don’t cover it when it’s in the oven.

    Was looking for easy recipe to the dar with something high in protein and carbs and found this. I really think this will help a lot for my mass building goal.

    I haven’t tried it yet, cause usually, I’ll shop for ingredients in the weekend. I was thinking I can like,I should prepare for maybe 10 servings, keep them in the fridge. Some for breakfast at home and some for lunch at work.

    Would that be a great idea?

    By the way, my cooking skill is -1/10. I just started trying out stuff just few weeks ago. I don’t like to cook but I need tasty food for my fitness goals. And the food around my area gets boring fast. Haha

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Zaid, glad you stopped by. Yes, you can store it in the fridge for a few days if you want.
      This is a great protein packed breakfast that is super delicious! My husband never misses to tell me how much he loves it when I make it for breakfast or lunch.
      Hope you enjoy it as well! This recipe is very easy to make and the ingredients are just a few.
