Real Life Paleo: Sweet Potato Apple Hash

4.8 from 4 reviews


  • 2 tablespoons lard or fat of choice
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 pound Traditional Beef Breakfast Sausage (page 164) or store-bough breakfast sausage of choice
  • 2 medium green apples, peeled and diced
  • Salt and peper to taste


  1. In a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt the lard.
  2. Saute the sweet potatoes and onion, stirring frequently, until the sweet potatoes just begin to soften and the onion is translucent but not browned.
  3. Add the sausage and apples and continue to stir and cook until the sausage has browned. As you cook, break up the larger pieces of sausage with a spatula.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, stir to incorporate, and serve.


You can use this recipe as a guide for many other variations on hash. Try butternut or acorn squash with pears.
