Hello, everyone! If you’re a regular reader here, then you know that I’ve missed my normal Monday posting time for a few weeks now. Oops. It always feels a little awkward to start blogging again after a hiatus, no matter how short or long, but what can I say? I have a busy schedule and between almost buying a condo, a conference in Bethesda for my job, and a very exciting small collaboration with Estée Lauder on my Instagram (which is going live today!), I’ve been too busy to keep up with my blogging schedule.
So I figured what better way to get back to it than to share the easy paleo dinner recipe that’s been keeping me fed during all my busy weeknights? Yep, this recipes instructions consist of just cutting the ingredients up and cooking them. And it keeps really well for leftovers through out the week. Bonus!
Just a note about sausages: depending on where you buy them, they may not be technically “paleo”. If you’re looking to go hard core paleo, then Whole Foods is probably the best place to shop for meats. Otherwise, if you’re not too serious about paleo (like me) then a version without additives and with reduced sugar is fine. You eventually get used to having to read the ingredients list of certain products ;).
Paleo Sausage and Pepper Hash
- 1 lb sausage of your choice (I’ve been getting a mango habanero version from Stop and Shop)
- 2 bell peppers of different colors (I prefer green and orange)
- 1 sweet potato
- about 1 sweet potato’s worth of white potato (depending on what size/variety you get this will vary)
- 1 yellow onion
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F)
- Peel and dice the potatoes. Dice into roughly 1 inch cubes, coat in olive oil on a baking tray and season with salt/whatever to taste. My personal cooking hack is to season potatoes with the pre-made steak rubs, but whatever you feel like is fine. Depending on what flavor sausage you get, you could find a seasoning that is compatible or use plain old salt.
- Place the potatoes in the oven for 10 minutes.
- While the potatoes roast, place your sausages in a pan with olive oil over medium-high heat and cook. I like to get a nice char on all sides, but you don’t have to do that.
- While the sausage cooks, roughly chop the onion and peppers.
- At this point the potatoes will most likely be done, so take them out and flip them, then put them back in for another 10 minutes.
- When the sausages are done, set them aside and place the onion and pepper in the pan to start cooking. While those are in the pan, slice up the sausage and then add it back in.
- Once the potatoes are done, add those to the pan as well and stir everything together.
