Frugal Family Feast: Sweet Potato, Broccoli and Sausage Hash

Satisfy a hungry family on a tight budget with a scrumptious sweet potato, broccoli and sausage hash. This Frugal Family Feast recipe will feed four or more for less than $15.

Chef Jorge Montes, owner and executive chef of Roho Kitchen, shared his technique with Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson. Watch this video and read on for the recipe.

Preparing the sausage mixture

The recipe calls for four Italian sausages, which Chef Jorge found for about $1 a link, or you can use bulk Italian sausage instead. You brown the sausage with onions, broccoli and spices in a large frying pan or iron skillet. Before cooking, remove the casings from the sausage if you’re using links. Then break the sausage into small pieces in the pan and cook until it’s no longer pink.

Roasting the sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes give nice color and body to this dish. You start by peeling the sweet potatoes, then cutting them into 1-inch cubes. Then toss with chopped oregano, extra virgin olive oil, pepper and salt.

Roast the potatoes until they’re tender in a 350-degree oven, for about 20 minutes.

Assembling the dish

Once the sausage is thoroughly cooked, add the roasted sweet potatoes to the pan and mix.

In another pan, fry four eggs sunny side up. Plate a serving of hash, then place an egg on top.

This texture and flavor-rich meal is great for dinner, breakfast or brunch.
