I came home late from work last night to find my husband working hard in the kitchen – he had music blaring through the house and sausage cooking in the skillet. I asked what was for dinner, and he said “breakfast” – but I definitely was expecting what we had.
Breakfast can be so boring on paleo – eggs, bacon, veggies, rinse and repeat. So when I saw he was making hash, I thought it might be more interesting. It was a super simple hash with sweet potatoes, onions and sausage – with little to no spices. Most of the flavor came from the sausage which we got at the local farmers market, and he cooked the potatoes and onions in the grease. Then cracked 4 eggs on top and stuck it in the oven.
It was absolutely heavenly, and I ate about 2 lbs of it (easily). I have a major food baby this morning which I tried to work off at the gym this morning – but the food baby was totally worth it. If you make this, you will totally understand why I ate so much of it! He topped it off with a little sriarcha (because who doesn’t like a little extra spice). Next time I think it would be excellent with some avocado and tomato slices.
This would be a great recipe for next time you have people staying in your house, it’s so simple – only taking about 30 minutes – and so filling!
