Sausage Sweet Potato Skillet


This recipe tips a hat to a recipe from Jan 2013 that starts with one of my Crossfit poems:

“Millions of wall balls and then we ran!
How can I get excited for Fran?
Split jumps and pistols made my butt sore,
But Paleo recipes can’t be a chore!”

Ha! Sausage and Sweet Potato Skillet is great but this one’s even better!

I put 2 sweet potatoes in a pan, covered them with water, put a lid on it, and let them boil until tender when stuck with a fork.

While the sweet potatoes were boiling, I put the next ingredients into a skillet to brown:

1 lb of grass fed ground beef

1/2 pound of sausage in a skillet

1 onion, diced

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

While those ingredients were cooking, I sliced up  2 zucchini and then threw them into the skillet, stirring until meat was cooked and onions and zucchini were tender.

The last thing to do was to pour the hot water off the sweet potatoes, rinse them in cool water, and peel them. Then I added them to the skillet and stirred it all together.

I immediately put the food into 4 meal prep containers. This stuff is so good, it’s easy to want to eat the whole skillet full!
