Chorizo Sweet Potato Hash

Since we did Whole 30 in May 2016, Sweet Potato hash has been implemented into our dinner rotation. Usually we use breakfast sausage for Sweet Potato Hash but we have 30 pounds of Mexican Chorizo sausage, the hubby made from his deer. Having never tried this sausage, I wasn’t sure what to think but this hash was Mexican yum on the tongue. Especially when topped with fresh tomato and avocado, or salsa and hot sauce as the hubby prefers.

To start this tasty one-pot meals, grab a large skillet. The largest one you have to be safe. Brown your sausage. If you don’t have Chorizo, breakfast sausage will do. Just add a teaspoon or two of taco seasoning to add a mexican touch. As it browns, mince your garlic and onion. I use the Tupperware Smart Chopper.

No, I am not a crazy Tupperware lady, but I do love this thing. And the silly thing is always dirty in my dishwasher when I need it. How dare it? Anyways, if you like tears continue to mince your onion and garlic by hand.

Now that your tears have dried up and you can see again, throw the onion and garlic in with your browning sausage. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes, while stirring the sausage mixture so that it does not burn.

Once the meat is browned add the potatoes. Cover with a lid so eggs-on-hash writefuljourney.comthe potatoes steam. If it begins to stick add a few tablespoons of water and stir often so the potatoes cook evenly.

When the potatoes are soft and are cut easily with your pancake flipper or metal spatula, stir once more. Break a dozen eggs over the top.

As you can see the egg whites start cooking immediately. Cover the hash again to steam cook the eggs. Watch carefully and remove pan from heat when the eggs have reached your desired length of firmness.
