Sausage + Brussels Sprouts Hash (in 15 Minutes!)
Serves: Makes about 3 servings
This one-pot-wonder meal uses only a handful of ingredients. Top with over-easy eggs for an even heartier meal, and enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
  • 2 Tbs. ghee, bacon grease or coconut oil
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 1 large or 2 small parsnips, peeled and chopped into large pieces
  • Splash (about 3 Tbs.) of broth/stock
  • 1½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tsp. maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 lb. ground sausage of choice (I used apple chicken sausage)
  • Over-easy eggs, for serving, optional
  1. In a skillet, start cooking the leek in the ghee over medium heat. Meanwhile, throw the brussels into a food processor and pulse briefly until it resembles rice-like grains. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with the parsnip.
  2. Once the leek has softened, add in the brussels sprouts and leek. Add the splash of broth and partially cover, stirring frequently, for about 8 minutes until the veggies are crisp-tender. Stir in all the seasonings (dijon, maple, salt, thyme).
  3. Place the veggies aside in a bowl. In the skillet, cook the sausage until done. Add back in the veggies. Serve and enjoy! If desired, make some over-easy eggs to serve atop the hash.
