Daniel and I wanted to share one of his recipes from his breakfast cookbook. This is the current favorite breakfast dish at our house because it’s absolutely delicious (and it’s gluten-free, egg-free, and–if you don’t use butter–dairy-free).
Sweet-Sweet Potato Hash
We eat a LOT of eggs and sometimes get a little egged out. Plus, since we’re usually dependent on our small flock of chickens for eggs, we sometimes find ourselves a little short. So it’s nice to have some eggless breakfast favorites. This sweet-sweet potato hash has both apples and sweet potatoes and has a delightful, natural sweetness. Sage goes wonderfully with the apples and sausage and the cinnamon helps bring out the sweetness of this dish. This is a favorite with our family.
You could probably use lots of different kinds of sausage for this recipe. I like using smoked pork sausage because it’s easier to cook with and I like the texture with the other ingredients. In our area, we have several brands of local pork sausage. One we often use (and is pictured here) comes in 2 oz links and has a little bit of a kick.
- 2 Tbsp butter (or oil)
- 2 Medium sweet potatoes, diced
- ½ lb Smoked sausage cut into chunks
- 2 Medium baking apples, diced
- 1 Handful of sage, chopped
- ½ tsp Cinnamon
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat the butter in a pan over medium high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and saute for about 5 minutes or they begin to soften.
Add the apples and continue to cook for a few minutes. Next, add the sausage, sage, and cinnamon. Cook until the apples are soft and the sausage has begun to brown slightly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

So happy for you! Hope your farm experience is wonderful! Also, I think one of my favorite things in the world is sweet potato hash, lol.
You are too cute, God bless you and your family on your journey!
Aw, Haley. How exciting for your family! You are courageous and you inspire me! Can’t wait to read all about the move and what the future brings. Prayers for you and your beautiful family 🙂
I’m having so much fun catching up on your blog! Super excited about your move and the choices you and Daniel are making. We’ll be praying for you guys and looking for a time when our paths can cross again 🙂

Once you get on a farm, you’ll never go back. My children have been lucky to live on a ranch their entire lives. Once you see your little ones able to run endlessly, without fear of traffic, without worry about bothering the neighbors, the horizon as their boundaries, you will say every sacrifice was worth it.
I can’t wait to read about the new space, and whish your family the best.
So…this week’s CSA box had sweet potatoes AND apples! Perfect! Thanks for sharing!
I know I’m super late to this post, but I wanted to let you know that I made the hash with great success! I made a few adaptations for my family’s tastes (chicken apple sausages, added diced vidalia onion, omitted the sage and cinnamon). My husband called it “hearty, and simple, in the best way.”
