A healthy dish with chicken apple sausage, sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts that is a perfect sweet and savory combo for a paleo and Whole 30 approved meal.
I can’t even remember the first time I had this combo of chicken apple sausage, sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts, but since that time this has constantly been in our weekly dinner rotations. It’s such an easy meal to prepare, especially if you roast the vegetables ahead of time. And can be eaten for any meal, as you know from Instagram I’m team #putaneggonit.
The number one reason I love this meal is that it only requires 5 ingredients and most definitely does not lack in flavor. Usually I already have some of my Perfectly Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Spouts already prepped and just need to saute the chicken sausage in some olive oil, fry the eggs, and add to each bowl.
But if you prefer you could also make everything all in one skillet. Just warm 2 teaspoons cooking oil in a non-stick skillet or cast iron pan and add the sweet potatoes, cook for about 5 minutes before adding the chopped brussels sprouts and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender and brussels sprouts are browned. Then add the Chicken Apple Sausage.
The chicken sausage takes less than 5 minutes to brown, plus it’s already cooked. I am a big fan of Aidell’s Chicken Apple Sausage. I slice them thin and use one sausage per person.
For the sunny eggs I add a little cooking oil to a separate non-stick pan over medium heat then add the eggs and fry until cooked throughly. Leaving a runny yolk of course. But feel free to cook the eggs however you prefer. Oh and I’m OBSESSED with my new non-stick pans.
The eggs can also be made right in the skillet with the chicken apple sausage, sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts.
I don’t think this dish needs any extra seasonings or spices, but I occasionally like to add a little crushed red pepper to give it a little kick. You could also add some garlic or thyme.
