I was craving a hash and decided to throw together something that was paleo-friendly. The sweet potatoes in this give it a touch of sweetness, the chorizo gives it a flavorful punch, and the egg tops this dish off perfectly! It is an easy dish to choose different veggies and make it your own! Have fun with it!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken sausage and chorizo sausage in the hot oil until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease.

  • Stir sweet potato, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper into sausage mixture; add chicken broth and simmer, adding more chicken broth if mixture gets too dry, until sweet potato is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Mix zucchini and spinach into sweet potato-sausage mixture and simmer until zucchini is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain excess liquid.

  • Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and keep the water at a gentle simmer. Crack an egg into a small bowl then gently slip the egg into the simmering water, holding the bowl just above the surface of the water. Poach the egg until the whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove egg from the water with a slotted spoon.

  • Top sweet potato-sausage mixture with poached egg.

Cook's Note:

If you don't like much heat, omit the crushed red pepper!

Substitute coconut oil for the olive oil if desired. Substitute the turkey sausage for the chicken sausage if desired.

Wonderful! I had to make a few adjustments though mainly because I live in a small town and they don't have much. So they were out of zucchini I left that out and added red bell pepper instead. I also removed the chorizo from the casing and cooked it that way with ground turkey. I cooked the eggs in the hash for the photo but I poached some extra as well:) My family really loved it!

This was really good. I added a bit too much stock so I had a little bit of sauce with mine. I am not one who likes runny yolks so I topped mine with scrambled eggs.. yum Read More

Easy weeknight dish that's become a quick staple! After making this a ew times I made a couple changes to our taste.. Which might not make this 100% paleo (not great with this yet!). I use turkey chorizo and no nitrate no fillers apple maple chicken sausage 1 pkg each.. 1 very large sweet potato fresh mushrooms sliced (the smaller sized package) about 1/2 a large red onion diced & about 8-10 small sweet peppers cut up.. to speed things along i toss in a table spoon or two of unsalted chicken stock and close the lid (helps the potatoes and adds a little flavor) I also toss in a couple tablespoons of pimenta moida (Portuguese hot chopped peppers) just before I add a full bag spinach at the very end. Be careful with that if you don't like heat!:) Read More

This. Was. Fantastic. I used my 12" cast iron skillet and it took a while to prepare but was totally worth the time spent. Next time I would cook the turkey/chicken sausage first as some of it didn't really hit the pan because the chorizo was in the way so it took longer. I had trouble draining all the fat from the pan so I used some paper towel to swab the decks and it worked well to clean up the grease. After adding the cubed sweet potato I covered it with a lid to help the cooking along and I added corn with the zucchini (some of which I grated so I could see if I preferred cubed or grated zuch in it...grated was the winner!) Absolutely delish thanks for another great recipe. Read More

We love this one at our house! The chorizo is a MUST if you want a big punch of flavor! The poached egg completes the dish. I eat the leftovers without the egg but it is better with the egg. Read More
