Paleo Hash

Rated as 4.76 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is one of the best recipes I've made in the last year. Very simple, outstanding flavors.

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

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 instea...

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 turke...

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 d...

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.
