I started my first Whole30 on June 1! I’m excited. This is definitely something I want to do right now. It’s been a very stressful time in my life, and I want to devote some time and energy into making me feel my best physically so I can support those around me in difficult times. It’s only been a few days, and this is a meal I made on day one.
Also, I am relieved to report that black coffee is kinda growing on me. However, I can no longer disguise mediocre coffee with cream. Has to be good stuff. A Starbucks Americano (black) is currently my favourite.
I got the idea for this recipe from the Whole 30 Success Guide. There was a recipe for an apple and sweet potato hash in there that intrigued me (or maybe I’m lying to you. I can’t remember and I can’t be bothered to check). I made this for dinner, but you could make it for breakfast and omit the eggs if you are looking for some egg-free options. It would also reheat well, but if you are going to store and reheat it, cook your eggs separately.
Sweet potato, apple, sausage and egg hash - Serves two very hungry adults and one toddler going through a picky phase (“No yummy meat, mommy!”)
- One shallot, thinly sliced
- One apple, peeled and julienned
- One large sweet potato, peeled and julienned (I used the food processor)
- Three sausages – any type. I used garlic from a local grocery store with no fillers (read your labels!)
- 1 tsp of allspice
- four eggs
- 1 T of coconut oil
Turn on your oven’s broiler. Over medium heat, Saute your shallots in coconut oil or ghee
After a few minutes add the sausage (casings removed and crumbled)
Once the sausage is browned (it’s okay if it is not fully cooked yet), add the sweet potato
Add the julienned apple (I would have used the food processor for the apple too, but my potato was shredded before I froze it!). Sprinkle on the allspice. Cook for another 5 minutes until the mixture is reduced.
Once the mixture is cooked, crack your eggs onto the skillet.
Pop it under the broiler for 5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. These ones were a soft-medium poach consistency. Maybe a minute overcooked for a soft poach. Scoop it into a bowl and enjoy!
