Sausage and Sweet Potato Paleo Egg-Free Breakfast Skillet


I thought this was really good! I did chop 1 1/2 yellow onions, saute them and add them to the chili, used an extra can of black beans, and some extra chili powder, cumin and added minced garlic. Added more sweet potato, too, because I had it on hand.


  • 12-14 ounces (1 package) of pre-cooked sausage (I used Pederson’s), sliced
  • 3 cups diced sweet potato (roughly 1 fairly large sweet potato or 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 3 cups baby spinach or kale
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano (or thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: green onions, avocado, parsley or eggs for topping/garnish


  1. Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat
  2. Once oil is hot, add the diced potatoes and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. Add in the diced onion, minced garlic, and spices
  4. Cook an additional 5 minutes until onions are translucent and sweet potatoes are about done, stirring occasionally
  5. Add and stir the sliced sausage into the skillet and additional oil if needed
  6. Let cook for 2 minutes, then adding in the spinach
  7. Fold the spinach into the skillet as it wilts down, about 3 minutes
  8. Once the sausage is hot, potatoes are cooked thoroughly and spinach has wilted but is still bright green, remove from heat
  9. Top with any optional garnish and enjoy!
