  • Thoroughly wash and dry 2 large sweet potatoes. Dice the sweet potatoes into small chunks. Try to make sure that the diced potatoes are the same size to ensure that they cook evenly.
  • Heat a skillet to medium and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Once the oil is heated add 1 lb. mild turkey breakfast sausage to pan (use a spicy variety if you want more spice). Saute the sausage for 5-6 minutes breaking it apart as it cook.
  • Remove the sausage from the pan once it has fully cooked but leave the grease in the pan (this provides great flavor.
  • Add another Tbsp. of olive oil if necessary and place the diced sweet potatoes into the skillet. Saute for a few minutes, stirring often. Add 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. smoked paprika, ¼ tsp. red chili flakes (optional), and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Stir the spices into the potatoes.
  • Deglaze the pan with ¼ cup or so of vegetable stock or low-sodium chicken stock and stir the potatoes, scraping up any bits from the bottom. Repeat this process every few minutes so the potatoes do not stick to the bottom. Add ¼ cup or so of stock every few minutes for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked add the sausage back into the pan along with 2 cups of chopped kale. Stir all of these ingredients together until combined and the kale has wilted a bit.
  • Optional: Cook 4 eggs any way you like and top the hash with them. Check out this post for a complete guide to cooking eggs
  • Top hash with diced avocado and serve.
