What You'll Need
Cook It Up!
Roughly peel sweet potatoes and then dice them into cubes, approximately 1/2 inch.
Short on time (aren’t we all)? Skip the peel step! Not only will it save you time, the sweet potato peel has lots of nutrients. Double score!
We’re going to give the sweet potatoes a yummy crunch before we bake them. So first preheat your oven to 350° F, and then grab a large pan and heat it on HIGH for 1 minute. Add 1 TBSP of your favorite cooking oil and then add your sweet potatoes, making sure all cubes come into contact with the pan. Lightly season them with salt and pepper and cook on HIGH for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove your sweet potatoes from the pan and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes while you prepare your sausage.
You can use the same cutting board and pan you used for the sweet potatoes for the sausage. No risk of cross contamination whatsoever! And a couple less dishes in the dishwasher is always nice!
Cut sausage into halves.
Get your pan nice and hot! Usually this takes about 2 minutes. Then add 1 TBSP of your favorite cooking oil. Place sausage in a single layer, making sure all halves come into contact with the pan. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Cook sausage 8-10 minutes or until hot turning occasionally.
Once the sausage is brown, add a couple handfuls of spinach to the pan. Stir spinach and sausage together for 1 minute until the spinach cooks down.
