This one is not the prettiest, but it sure is tasty. A Whole30 meal you can pull together in minutes! This one is featuring Applegate Whole30 approved chicken & apple sausage, shaved brussel sprouts and butternut squash. A hearty, sweet and delicious hash. You could eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A great option if you’re sick of eggs for breakfast but still like to have a heartier first meal of the day. If you’re not sick of eggs you could certainly top this hash with one, you can never go wrong with a fried egg on top!
I love all the Whole30 approved Applegate products that are available now. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s great to have sausage or turkey burgers on hand to quickly pull together a meal when you have no other plans. Sausages will last in your fridge or freezer longer than fresh meat so it’s nice to have them available just in case! These chicken & apple ones are not what I would usually go for, I’m more of a spicy sausage type of person, but these were great and not too sweet.
I love using shaved brussel sprouts for hashes, an easy way to add a veggie and they cook so much quicker than when they’re whole. I’ve found them at Whole Foods, Target, Trader Joe’s, most grocery stores really. Another item that will stay pretty long in your fridge that’s great to have on hand. If you don’t like brussel sprouts you could opt for kale, or spinach to get a leafy green in.
The Butternut Squash
For this one I opted to use butternut squash instead of potatoes. The sweetness of the butternut squash just goes so nicely with the chicken & apple sausages. But, you could certainly swap them out for potatoes or sweet potatoes. I love sautéing butternut squash, it gets that crispy outside like potatoes but with a little extra sweetness! If you haven’t tried them, I highly suggest it! I cooked these from frozen. I had cubed up a bunch of butternut squash to freeze back in the fall. So if you can’t find any fresh you can certainly opt for the frozen variety and this will come out just as delicious. As you’re cooking the butternut squash you don’t want to toss them too much as they’ll start to get stringy and fall apart. They’re not as strong as a potato. So resist the urge and let them sit for a bit and crisp before you start tossing around. For that reason I actually suggest cooking them separately than the sausage and brussel sprouts and mixing after. It dirties one more pan, but will come out a little bit better if you can cook them separately.
I hope you enjoy this quick and simple hash! Leave a comment and let me know how you made it yours!
Chicken & Apple Sausage Hash
- 1 butternut squash cubed
- 1 package of Applegate Chicken & Apple Sausage sliced
- ½ package of shaved brussel sprouts
- 1 -2 tbsp of olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- In a medium skillet heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium high heat, when hot add in the butternut squash and season with salt & pepper
- Let sit before tossing too much so they don’t fall apart, but they will crisp up like potatoes
- Heat another skillet over medium high heat with 1 tbsp olive oil and add the sliced sausage, toss periodically to evenly cook sausage
- After about 6-7 min add in the brussel sprouts with the sausage tossing to evenly cook the brussel sprouts
- Once the butternut squash is browned on all sides, sausage is crispy, and brussel sprouts tender mix them together to serve! This should take about 15 minutes total for the butternut squash and the sausage & brussels to cook.
