Fall Sausage Hash


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!

Sweet Potato Chicken Skillet


I didn’t plan meals this week, so I have been experimenting with what groceries we have. And ya know, they haven’t been terrible.

I have been doing a lot of chicken skillets, adding whatever veggies I can find, and serving it over a grain or good carb. This past dinner turned out pretty well, and took about 25 minutes. Boom.

All it took was 1 sweet potato, 1 medium sweet onion, 1 larger chicken breast, chipotle and maple syrup.


You’ll notice a theme in my recipes. . .chipotle and maple syrup are the stars of the show pretty often.

Start by putting a small pot of water on high heat, to get it boilin’.


Now give your onion and sweet potato a a choppin’.



Next just have your husband chop up the chicken breast, and start browning it over 1 TBSP olive oil or some pan spray. Whatevs.


Give it a turn, and then add your onions.



Throw your sweet potatoes into the boiling water for about 3-4 minutes.


Once they are almost tender, add them to the skillet with the other ingredients, and get them browning.


If is starts looking like this, you’re on the right track.


Add a rounded 1/4 tsp of chipotle (ground).


Then about 2-3 TBSP of pure maple syrup and cook, stirring often, for about 2 minutes.


Now pile it on your plate and enjoy. 🙂



D’s parents are coming to town today, so I made Spaghetti Squash Casserole and have it sitting in the fridge. Great make-ahead recipe. I might try my hand at my grandma’s bread later today. SO hard to make it like her, so we’ll see! 🙂

Happy Hump Day!
