Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Turkey Sausage Hash

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend, spending time with friends and family and getting to recharge <3

My local grocery store had sweet potatoes for $0.25/ pound a few weeks ago. I guess they ordered too many for the holidays and had a ton that they were trying to get rid of. Either way, I was thrilled and bought several. This girl loves a deal :)

I wasn't sure what I would make with them, but I remembered seeing some sort of sweet potato skillet recipe on one the blogs I frequent, Carrots 'N' Cake. I didn't have my phone or computer nearby, so I sort of threw together what I had on hand. The end result was Sweet Potato, Spinach and Turkey Sausage Hash. I actually really enjoyed this meal and I'll definitely be adding it to the rotation! I love it when I'm able to find healthy dinners that taste great!

Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Turkey Sausage Hash


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 huge sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 small onion
1/4 cup broth or water
2 links of Italian turkey sausage, chopped into small pieces
3 cups fresh spinach
Salt and pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes, onions, and broth (or water) and cook until tender.

In a separate skillet, cook the turkey sausage  until it is browned and no longer pink on the inside.

Add the turkey sausage and spinach to the sweet potato mixture and cook on medium-low until the spinach wilts. Season with salt and pepper as desired.

What are your favorite dishes to make with sweet potatoes?

I'm a huge fan of slicing sweet potatoes thin, sprinkling them with olive oil and cinnamon, and baking for an alternative to French fries.

  5. i chop the sweet potatoes into cubes, cover them in coconut oil, sprinkle with nutmeg, cinnamon and salt and bake in the oven at 425 for about 35-40 min. they taste like they are candied, but they arent. no butter, no brown sugar. they are awesome
