Sweet Potato Hash - 21 Day Fix Approved
So I had a pack of Chicken Apple Sausage and had NO idea what to make with it. Honestly, I hadn't even tried it before. I found a recipe online and it is seriously, and I mean seriously the BOMB.COM! I had it for dinner and it made enough for me to have it as breakfast the next two days.
PS it took maybe 20 minutes to make from cutting veggies and cooking.
Al Fresco Chicken Sausage Apple (you could use different brands)
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Apple
1 Sweet Potato
First thing I did was wash my sweet potato and poke it with a fork. I cook it in the microwave for 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook on the other side for 3 minutes.
Then while that is cooking, put some extra virgin olive oil in a pan and heat up. You probably want to use a pan that has higher sides, so that your veggies don't fall out.
Dice your onion first. I used about 1/4 of an onion, but by all means if you're an onion lover feel free to add more. My boyfriend calls them poison, so I can't add too many. (even though he doesn't know 1/2 the time I add cooked onion to meals) Add them to the pan and let them start cooking.
Next, dice up a red pepper and add it to the pan. Once that is added I sliced the zucchini in rounds then cut the round into 4 pieces (so it was 4 triangles). Add that to the pan.
Dice an apple into small pieces and add that to the pan. I used 1/2 an apple the first time and the second time a whole apple. I like it with the whole apple better.
Once the sweet potato is cooked, you can cook the Al Fresco Chicken Sausage in the microwave! (SAY WHAT!) Crazy right. If you're using a different brand than what I used check the cooking instructions. I don't want anyone getting sick. I cooked the 4 sausages on a plate for 1 min then flipped them over and cooked for another 2 minutes.
Your potato is going to be HOT! So, what I do is slice it so that it can cool off a little bit. Once it's cooled so you can touch it the skin should come off relatively easy. Then cut it into smaller pieces. It's going to be a bit mushy, but that is ok! Add that to the pan with everything else.
Once the chicken sausage is cooked, slice it into smaller pieces and add to the pan. I sliced it then cut the slices in half to make them go further.
While that is all cooking, cook 2 eggs over easy in a separate pan. I know sounds weird, but trust me it's so good.
Don't fill your plate with this! Seriously, a little bit goes a long way. I put some in my bowl and thought that isn't a lot maybe I should add more. Then I said to myself NO ASHLEY, you can come back and get more if you really think you need it. Top with the fried egg. Then break the egg up and enjoy!
You can measure everything out with your containers and cook an individual serving or you can try to measure after you cook it all. I would say it's about 1/2 a yellow, 1 green, 1.5 red, and 1/2 a purple.
PS - if you want to eat it as leftovers at home with a pan where you can cook more egg go for it, but you can also eat it with out the egg and it's still amazing. I had it at work for breakfast and was in heaven.
I hope you enjoy!!
