Hello, all! I hope your week is going smoothly. After all, it is half way over! 🙂 I was called to substitute yesterday, so I didn’t get a chance to put this recipe on the blog. It’s a great hearty meal that goes good with a chilly weather change. Fall Sausage Hash.
This skillet is full of sausage, sweet potato, kale and onions. It’s great as is, but can easily be modified to your tastes. The sweet potato can be swapped for any of the squash that’s abundant in the fall. I’d like to try it with Chicken-Apple Sausage, too. The apple would go great with the fall-ness of the hash. 🙂
Start out by browning about 1 pound of sausage in a skillet. Once browned, remove and drain off excess fat. To the same skillet, add 2 cups of finely chopped kale and 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced, over medium heat. Cook until translucent and soft.
Meanwhile, dice 1 large sweet potato and add to boiling water for about 3 minutes, or until almost soft. When the sweet potato is ready, add it to the onions and kale, followed by the drained sausage. Then add about 1 garlic clove, finely chopped.
Over medium heat, stir the hash together and let the flavors party for about 3 minutes, or until heated all the way through.
The spices and cheese you may want to add will vary depending on your sausage. The sausage I used seemed really salty, so I just added a touch of pepper and a little mozzarella. If you want something a little saltier, you may try feta. I think cheddar, Parmesan, or ANY cheese is wonderful! Now, eat it up. 🙂
Have a great day!
