Recently, our family traveled to Tampa, Florida to visit my brother and his family. We arrived late that night after 18 hours on the road, and we were ready to sleep. The next morning, we woke up to this sweet aroma cooking in the kitchen! Of coarse, my nose had to follow the smell. My sister in-law was cooking this delicious Healthy Breakfast Hash. At first, I was a little nervous to try it since I’ve always been a picky eater, and I usually stick with “my ingredients” when creating dishes. However, the smell to this dish was so good that there was no way I could turn it down! Even my kids woke up talking about how wonderful the smell was as it was cooking in the skillet. They couldn’t wait to try it and they are picky eaters too! This is a perfect dish to cook for a lot of people as there was ten of us to feed. Also, when you indulge in it’s goodness, you won’t feel guilty eating it since it’s all healthy and cooked in coconut oil! It’s not a messy prep, and it’s not expensive either! Also, if you have leftovers, this is great warmed up. You could cook it up on Sunday and eat this healthy breakfast all during the week! So, who’s ready for this yummy healthy breakfast? I know I am!
- 2 Granny Smith Apples (cored and diced into cubes)
- 1 Large Sweet Potato (diced into cubes)
- 2 Tablespoons Of Coconut Oil
- 1 lb. of Ground Sausage
- Extra: This is great to serve with a side of scrambled eggs!
In a large skillet, place two tablespoons of coconut oil. Once the skillet is warmed, placed the diced sweet potatoes in the skillet. Cook on a medium heat for approximately 10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are close to becoming soft. You don’t want to cook it too fast, because it will burn. You also don’t want to cook it too long and become mushy. While this is cooking, begin to cook and brown the ground sausage in a separate skillet. After about 10 minutes of cooking the sweet potatoes, add in the diced apples. The apples will cook faster than the sweet potatoes. Make sure you are stirring the skillet frequently so that the apples and sweet potato cubes are not sticking, and everything is being evenly cooked in the heat. During this time, it would be great to cook scrambled eggs to accompany your Healthy Breakfast Hash. Once the sausage is finished, browned, and drained, add it to the skillet with the apples and sweet potatoes. Place the heat on low, and simmer for about 3 minutes with all ingredients together. Then, you are ready to serve!
Enjoy with no guilt!
