This easy sausage and sweet potato hash recipe features Italian sausage, sweet potato, bell pepper, garlic, thyme, paprika, and eggs for a more savory meal. A few sliced green onions are added at the end. Of course, if you have picky eaters, you can always customize this meal to their liking. Omit the eggs, swap out the sausage for something milder, or leave out the bell peppers. The possibilities are endless!

If you want a sweeter flavor, try swapping out the sweet potatoes for butternut squash or add in some dried cranberries. Another suggestion is to swap out the Italian sausage for maple breakfast sausage and drizzle a little maple syrup before serving.

Quick and Easy Meal While RVing with Kids

Skillet meals like this are great to serve for breakfast or brinner (what my kids call breakfast for dinner). Regardless of when you serve it, it's sure to become a family favorite! My kids are always happy when I serve them breakfast foods for dinner and let's be honest - who isn't?!

This meal is also super easy to make while RVing. It  takes only a few minutes to cook everything up in one pan, so you can spend more time enjoying your vacation and less time cooking.

To make this meal even easier, pre-cook the sweet potatoes, sausage, and peppers before your trip begins and freeze the mixture. Then all you would need to do is reheat the mixture in the skillet before adding the eggs.

How to Make Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe is so simple that even your kids can help make it!

  • 1/2 pound bulk sausage, I like to use a sweet Italian sausage
  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small pieces
  • 4 tablespoons oil, I like olive oil but you can use whatever you have on hand
  • 2 bell peppers, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cloves minced garlic or 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1-2 green onions, diced (optional)


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until it is browned and cooked through.
  2. Remove the cooked sausage from the skillet and set it aside on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  3. To the same skillet, add the sweet potatoes to the rendered sausage drippings. Add additional oil, if needed, to prevent sticking.
  4. Cook the sweet potatoes, stirring occasionally until they are almost fork-tender but haven't started to brown yet. This will take 8-10 minutes.
  5. Add the chopped bell peppers, garlic, thyme, and paprika to the skillet. Stir everything together.
  6. Cook bell pepper for 3-4 minutes or until just tender.
  7. Add sausage back into the skillet and stir well to combine.

For fried eggs cooked inside the hash (my favorite way):

  1. Create 4 small wells in the hash.
  2. If you want your eggs to be more of a poached style, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to each well to steam the egg.
