Sweet Potato Hash

We’re down to our last box of cereal, with no plans to replenish the supply.  I think I’m more nervous about it than my kids are, mostly because it means I won’t have something simple to fall back on every morning for breakfast. But, I’ve learned that those innocent-looking boxes of cereal are not the best thing to feed our kids first thing every morning….sooo, time to find some alternatives.

Alternative #1-Sweet Potato Hash

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (use your food processor or box grater)

1 pkg breakfast sausage (preferably without added msg, nitrates, etc)

1/2 onion, finely chopped

2 tbs butter, olive oil or coconut oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Brown sausage, drain, and set aside, reserving drippings in skillet.  Add a tbs or two of butter to the skillet.  Add onions and cook until soft.  Add potatoes and cook, allowing to soften and then brown a bit. Return sausage to skillet and combine. Season to taste. Cook a few more minutes, until heated through. Serve immediately.

This met with mixed reviews.  My sausage-loving son ate it up and asked for more.  My girls were split:  two said it was just ok, the oldest one hated it. However…..she is quite sad about losing her cereal so I’m not sure it was a completely unbiased opinion.

I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day and decided I do really like it, though I think I’ll play around with some variations.  I’ll keep you posted!
