Chicken Sausage Breakfast Skillet + Yolky Egg

Posted on

ALL RECIPES ARE: WHOLE30* AND PALEO-FRIENDLY; WE USE NO GRAINS, GLUTEN, DAIRY, SOY, REFINED OR ADDED SUGAR, OR ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS IN ANY OF OUR MEALS OR RECIPES. EVER. 

I hate to say I play favorites, but this might be one of my top breakfast dishes of all time. Why's that? Well, fewer things in life rev up my engine the way a yolky egg do.  

I don't mean to get Rated R here, but there isn't much more satisfying to me than slicing into a poached egg and a perfectly yolky, slightly cooked middle pours out. I'm getting a little hot and bothered just thinking about it.

Mind you, this dish is a beautiful combination of sweet and savory without the egg, if a Whole30 breakfast recipe without eggs is what you're searching for. But for an added punch of protein, a yolky egg is the perfect addition.

Plus, who can resist a crispy, sweet yet salty sweet potato hash as a bed for your breakfast? Honestly, if you serve this dish up for a Whole30 friendly brunch with friends they'll probably do a double-take at their plates and ask you which restaurant you secretly brought this in from. It just looks so damn fancy. 

Serves 3

*use organic ingredients whenever possible*

1 pound of pasture raised chicken sausage or ground chicken

1 large sweet potato, shredded (approx 2 cups)

1.5 cups of kale 

3 eggs

3 tablespoons of ghee

fresh oregano, thyme, or micro basil for garnish

Rinse kale, completely dry it, and break it into small chunks.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt cooking fat in skillet, then add sweet potato and lightly season with salt. Cover and cook for about 2 minutes. 

Meanwhile, add a pot of about 6 cups of water over high heat, cover until boiling. Crack your eggs individually into a ramekin, coffee mug, or small bowl. Once the water is boiling, gently pour the eggs into the water. Immediately cover and remove from heat. Set a timer for 8 minutes. 

Remove the lid from skillet and add chicken sausage, making sure to stir the sweet potatoes to prevent burning, as well as to break up the chicken into small pieces. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder if you don't plan on kissing anyone today. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes or until chicken is just cooked through, occasionally stirring to prevent burning.

Add kale and mix until wilted. Spoon mixture onto plate.

Once your timer is up, use a slotted spoon to gently retrieve your eggs from the water, and place directly onto skillet mixture.

Garnish with any fresh herbs you have on hand, for added fanciness. Pinkies up, and enjoy!
