A sausage hash is a nutrient-dense and hearty meal that can be served any time of day. In this recipe I used carrots and potatoes, because that’s what I had on hand, but you can sub the vegetables with squash, sweet potato, bell peppers, etc.
- 3 large yukon potatoes, cut into 2-inch pieces (substitute sweet potato for Paleo)
- 6 carrots, cut into 1-inch coins
- 1 tablespoon ghee or tallow, melted
- 1 pound organic sausage (links or ground will work well)
- 1 onion, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
- 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
Place potatoes and carrots in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
Cook the sausage in the ghee over medium heat until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the onion, and continue to cook until onion is just turning golden on the edges, about 10 minutes (the sausage will start to brown a bit in the pan). Stir in the garlic. Stir in salt. Add the potatoes and carrots and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the parsley and serve.🖨️ Print post

I am surprised about having sausage in a dish on this web site.
Isn’t processed food bad for you? Organic or not, sausage is one of the worst food you can have. I hope you can convince me of being wrong, since I love sausage, but have not been having it for a long time.

Sausage is fine if it meets our standards listed here for BEST or GOOD:
Sausage, bacon and processed meats from (preferably soy-free) animals allowed to graze, processed without additives such as monosodium glutamate (MSG). (Note: Products containing hydrolyzed protein, citric acid, “spices,” or “natural flavors” usually contain MSG.) Pastured meats cured with salt, a small amount of sugar and naturally smoked. Also fine, pastured meats cured with sodium nitrite and added sodium erythorbates or ascorbates, which are antioxidants required by the USDA.
Sausage, bacon and processed meats made with the help of celery juice, celery powder, celery seed, spinach juice, spinach powder, carrot juice, carrot powder, beet juice, beet powder, sodium nitrate or sodium phosphate but without MSG and other questionable additives.
Most commercial sausage, bacon and processed meats containing MSG, smoke flavoring, liquid smoke, dry milk powder or high levels of additives; processed meats that are high pressure treated.
