Start your morning off right with this Sweet Potato and Kale Hash! It omits a lot of the oils and butter in a regular hash for a less heavy breakfast or dinner!
A typical hash for me used to involve boiling potatoes until they were al dente, then pan frying the potatoes in a cast iron skillet with lots of oil and butter until they were nice and crispy. Delicious as that may be, it’s a lot of fat!
– Chicken Sausage (I looove Aidell’s Italian Style Sausage)
– Sweet Potatoes
– Minced Garlic + Spices
Regular Potatoes vs. Sweet Potatoes
There’s no comparison, each is perfect in their own way and I love them both. Sweet potatoes have somehow been lumped as “healthier” than white potatoes but the reality is that they’re about equal.
I have not tried oven roasting regular potatoes for this recipe though. Because of the amount of starch in regular potatoes, I don’t think they’d get that slight crisp in the oven like the sweet potatoes did.
Hot sauce is my sauce of choice for hashes but add a runny egg on top of this and it really ties this whole meal together. Give this protein packed sweet potato and kale hash a try – it’s perfect for meal prepping for the week!
Sweet Potato and Kale Hash
- 1 lb Sweet Potato, peeled and cut into cubes
- 1/2 tsp Oregano
- 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
- ¼ tsp Black Pepper
- ¼ tsp Salt, plus more to taste
- ½ tsp Cumin
- 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 ½ tbsp Olive Oil Avocado, vegetable or canola works too
- Chicken Sausage Aidell's Italian Chicken Sausage is my favorite
- 1-2 Handfuls of Kale
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Use ½ tablespoon of the olive oil and massage into the kale for about 2 minutes. Set aside.
- Toss the sweet potatoes, the spices, minced garlic and the rest of the olive oil together and spread them out on the sheetpan.
- Roast for 15 minutes, then add the sausage to the pan and continue roasting for 5 minutes. Add kale and cook for about 3 more minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately. For added protein, fry an egg until it's sunny side up to add to the hash. The yolk makes a great sauce that ties it all together!
