Having this Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage for breakfast will put the "good" in "good morning!!" And with tons of protein coming from the sausage and eggs, it'll keep you satisfied until the lunch hour rolls around!
This sweet potato hash is a favorite breakfast in our household! We enjoy it for a hearty breakfast, brunch or even a "breakfast for dinner" night! It's a healthy meal even the kids in the family LOVE. The combination of sweet potato and the savory flavors from the sausage and peppers is a fantastic combo!
Back in 2022, I was a contestant on a Food Network Show and I was challenged to make a weeknight meal with ingredients that our kitchens were stocked with. This was the first thing that came to mind. I knew that if the judges loved it as much as my kiddos, it would be a winner!!
- Ground Sausage - We love a good classic pork sausage, but turkey sausage, chicken sausage or any kind of breakfast sausage will work. Use spicy sausage if you want some added heat!
- Bell Pepper - I like the sweetness from red peppers, but you could also use any other color.
- Cubed Sweet Potatoes - You could also use white potatoes in this dish.
- Salt & Pepper
- Green Onions - You could skip the green onions and add yellow onion with the bell pepper if you prefer.
How to Make a Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage
You'll start by browning the sausage and break it into small pieces in a large skillet (or large cast iron skillet) over medium heat.
Next you'll add the bell pepper, peeled and diced potatoes, pepper and water to the cooked sausage. Cook until the potatoes are fork tender, stirring occasionally. If you notice the potatoes sticking to the bottom of the pan, simply add a little more water.
Once the potatoes are cooked, stir in the sliced green onions.
Now you'll cook the eggs. You can cook them right into the hash (carefully break the eggs onto the hash, cover with a lid and cook until it's done to your liking) OR you can cook the eggs in a separate skillet to your liking. This is how I prefer to do it as it's easier to get it just right - scrambled, over-hard fried egg, sunny side up, etc!
Lastly, top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!!

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes!!! It's a delicious low carb, gluten free breakfast option! (You'll just want to double check that the sausage is free of gluten).
We love this dish paired with toasted English muffins and fresh fruit or frozen fruit cups! If you like a little something sweet with your breakfast, you could pair it with muffins or cinnamon rolls!
Let the hash cool a bit then transfer to an airtight container. Keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. I don't recommend freezing this as it'll make the potatoes mushy.
