Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash


This recipe is a Nuzum family favorite! It's a great way for us to get the kids a variety of vegetables in the morning and it's delicious.


2-3 cups sweet potato cut into small cubes

1 cup packed kale chopped small with stems removed.

1 cup brussel sprouts trimmed and sliced thin

1 cup AIP approved sausage (or ground turkey) **

1 apple, chopped

Salt to taste


  • Over medium heat, prepare a skillet with avocado oil, coconut oil, or tallow (1 tbsp).
  • Cook sausage and remove from skillet. Set aside.
  • Add another tbsp of fat to skillet then add sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts. Season with salt.
  • Cook uncovered until sweet potatoes are slightly browned and then cover until potatoes are soft, about 8 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning and adjust the heat if needed.
  • Add kale and apple and cook until kale has reached desired texture.
  • Turn off heat and add sausage. Mix together and serve.


** AIP sausage refers to sausage that is compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet. The AIP diet is designed to help reduce inflammation, pain, and other symptoms in people with autoimmune disorders. It involves eliminating foods that may trigger immune responses or gut irritation.

AIP sausage typically avoids ingredients that are commonly restricted on the AIP diet, such as:

- Grains: No wheat, corn, rice, or other grains.
- Legumes: Avoids beans, peanuts, and soy.
- Dairy: Completely dairy-free.
- Eggs: Excludes eggs, which are common allergens.
- Nightshades: No tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, or spices like paprika and chili, which are from the nightshade family.
- Nuts and seeds: Including spices derived from seeds, like mustard.

Instead, AIP sausage is made from meats that do not contain additives or fillers and is seasoned with AIP-compliant herbs and spices, such as turmeric, ginger, salt, and herbs like cilantro or basil. The goal is to provide a flavorful option for those following the AIP diet while avoiding ingredients that could potentially exacerbate symptoms of autoimmune conditions.
