With all of my new dietary restrictions in place, breakfast has been a bit of a challenge for me. And by challenge, I mean I have had to stop eating bread and begin thinking outside of the proverbial breadbox. Which is where this beautiful Apple, Sweet Potato and Chicken Sausage Hash came from.
Outside of that proverbial breadbox.
And outside of my comfort zone.
This breakfast is a bit more time intensive than I’m used to, requiring me to actually peel and chop ingredients versus pulling it from the bag and turning the toaster on.
It’s also not something I would naturally be inclined to throw together. Yes, I like apple, sweet potatoes, and the occasional piece of chicken sausage. I just wouldn’t be the first to throw them into a saucepan and call them breakfast.
And I wasn’t.
The inspiration totally came from Well Plated with Erin and her Harvest Chicken Skillet with Sweet Potatoes Brussels Sprouts and Sautéed Apples. It looked amazing (minus the bacon and brussels sprouts, of course) and knew that I had to try my hand at it.
My mouth and belly were quite happy with that decision.
And The Babe was quite happy to steal a few bites of chicken sausage along the way.
