Spicy Sweet Potato Hash topped with a fried egg on a white plate.

The holiday season is coming to an end — so after stuffing myself with an inappropriate amount of cheese, sugar, and bread I wanted something that was nutritious but still tasty. The best part is that the crispy potatoes, spicy sausage, and bitter greens all come together in one-pan! Continue reading to learn how to make this spicy sweet potato hash.

Step 1: Brown a quarter of a pound of sausage in a pan over medium-heat. You can use any kind of sausage you want. I used a spicy Italian sausage, but you’re in charge of the cooking process. Be your own chef! While the sausage is cooking, chop up the potatoes into cubed-size pieces, along with half of a large onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic. I LOVE garlic, so I added way more than 2 cloves. Don’t ever let a recipe tell you much garlic to add. You measure that shit with your heart!

Step 2: After the sausage is cooked (about 5-7 minutes), remove it from the pan and set it aside. We will add it back into the pan later. Add the onions and garlic, and cook until they begin to soften. Season with salt and pepper. This is called “sweating” the onions. They should be glistening and look a little wet — or sweaty — because of the heat and salt.

Step 3: Next, add the sweet potatoes and the kale. Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Heat is my jam, so I added about a quarter of a teaspoon. Actually, I have absolutely no idea how much I added because math is stupid. I don’t measure anything, ever.

Note: Notice that I’m asking you to add more salt and pepper even though I had you do the same thing in step 2. It’s not an accident. You want to season during every step of the process, so that everything tastes good!

Step 4: Continue to cook until the potatoes are brown and crispy or fork-tender; it could take anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on how small/large you chopped the potatoes. Add the sausage back to the pan, and stir to combine. Add a fried egg on top like I did for extra protein, and you’re done! You could even make some scrambled eggs, and put this hash into a tortilla for an awesome breakfast burrito!
