Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet Potato Hash

I have posted some skillet recipes before, and this one is similar- except somewhat healthy. I love making skillets on a Saturday morning if we have left over brats or Italian sausage. I pretty much throw whatever leftovers together and put some over easy eggs on top.

This, is not like my thrown together skillets. Trader Joe’s had $0.99 sweet potatoes- each!!! Yes, each!!!! So, naturally, I grabbed the biggest sweet potatoes my eyes could see. I’ve got some sweet potato recipes that I’m brain storming, but I can’t have a week of sweet potatoes. That would be overkill.

Last week I tried chicken apple breakfast sausage in a scrambled egg spinach mixture topped with melted Gouda (yes, it was heaven on a plate to answer your question)- the chicken apple sausage was so good!! So now I’m all addicted to the idea of putting chicken apple sausage in a breakfast egg dish… I threw some into this hash. Phenomenal!!!!


You can omit the chicken apple smoked gouda sausage if that just sounds too freaky for you, or you could substitute it with another breakfast sausage. Do you!

I didn’t include any greens, but I’ve seen other hashes with Kale or spinach- which would be a nice addition. Personally, I like the simplicity of the sweet potatoes, onions, and chicken apple smoked gouda sausage (it doesn’t seem that simple when I actually type it out), but you can add in whatever veggies you would prefer! Regular potatoes would work just fine too if you aren’t a sweet potato fan.


For the Chicken Apple Smoked Gouda Sausage (it was so good), I bought the brand Sausages by AmyLu. They are all natural and gluten free (I’m not gluten free, but for those folks who are). There is a wide array of various different products out for you to choose from! I definitely want to go back to the store and try some more. Here is the link that will take you to the Sausages by AmyLu!

As you can see in that big frying pan, this batch makes a lot! I put the leftovers in a Tupperware container and I plan on reheating them in a frying pan tomorrow morning for breakfast.

Below you’ll find the printable recipe for this sweet potato hash. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Hash


  • 2 tbsp Oil of choice
  • 1 large Sweet Potato, diced
  • 1 large Sweet Onion, diced
  • 2 Chicken Apple Smoked Gouda Sausage Links, diced
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  • In a large frying pan, on medium-low heat, heat up your 2 tbsp of oil. While that is heating up, dice your sweet potatoes.
  • Turn the heat to medium, and put your sweet potatoes in the frying pan. While those are cooking, dice your sweet onion. Once diced, mix your sweet onions in with your sweet potatoes.
  • Allow that to cook for 7-10 minutes. You can put a lid over it if you like. I put a lid over it for about 4 minutes. While that is cooking dice your chicken apple sausage.
  • After you notice the onions becoming transparent and some of the potatoes are browned on one side, dump your chicken apple gouda sausage in the frying pan.
  • Allow to cook for about 5 more minutes. The chicken apple gouda sausage I bought was pre-cooked, so it simply needed to warm up.
  • After your 5 minutes, push your hash to one half of the frying pan. Cook your eggs however you like on the other half.
  • If you wish to, you can cook your eggs in a separate pan- do whatever is easiest for you!

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

On our way home from Michigan, Kevin and I stopped at a couple of farmer’s stands to pick up some fresh produce. As soon as we got home, we were both so tired and hungry. I couldn’t think of anything to make for the life of me. Kevin saw there was leftover grilled chicken in my fridge. He took that and ran with it, ultimately making these amazing Grilled Chicken Fajitas. Here’s what you need to make roughly 5 tacos worth…


3 very thin Chicken Breasts

1 Banana Pepper

1 Green Pepper

1/2 Small Sweet Onion

Toppings- tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce, cheese, salsa… whatever you like on top of your tacos!

5 Tortilla Shells


-Grill your chicken so it is cooked, if you are using it the same day for the Fajitas, then once cooked slice into strips. However, if you are using leftover grilled chicken, slice it and heat it up in a skillet on the stove.


-Chop your veggies, and throw them on a skillet on the stove.

-While your veggies are cooking, start prepping your toppings.

-Once your veggies are done cooking, heat up the tortillas on the skillet so they are nice and warm and easy to fold.
