Sweet Potato & Chicken Sausage Hash

If only my stomach were a little larger. Because if it were, I would have tried to eat this entire skillet. All by myself.

This is a phenomenal combination of sweetness, heartiness and warmth. It’s a great, simple meal that will warm your tummy on these FRIGID COLD DAYS.

{And yes, it’s totally okay to stand over the skillet to keep yourself warm!}

It’s not even ‘that cold’ in San Antonio this week…compared to what my northern family and friends are dealing with…but this hot weather babe is still freezing!

I’ve debated wearing gloves in the house while I work, but I don’t think I’d be able to type very well and since we’ve already had one ‘hot mess’ of a blog post this week, I’m going without the gloves and might end up making another skillet dinner tonight so that I can warm my hands ‘over the fire.’

On we go to this recipe…

Slice and chop.

Chicken sausage. Green pepper. Red pepper.

And sweet potato. (Which I’d already put in the skillet.)

Saute the sweet potato in your favorite oil for a few minutes to let it soften. If need be, add a little water so that it ‘steams’ a bit while it’s sauteeing.

Once they have softened up a little, add the chopped peppers.

And seasonings.

Mix together and saute for a few minutes, stirring often.

And warming hands over the steam if need be 🙂

Mix in the sliced sausages and let them warm up. The brand (Aidell’s) I use is pre-cooked, so we are just warming them. If you are using raw sausage, make sure it has time to cook through, or cook them in a separate skillet before mixing all together.

Let saute, stirring often until the sweet potato cubes are softened.

Devour.

Try not to eat the entire skillet, mkay?

P.S. This is totally Whole30 and Paleo friendly.
