Since I work in the evenings, I find myself trying to make things for dinner that are easy to reheat for my boys. This was SO easy and I made quite a dent in it before leaving for work. It was awesome!
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb sweet italian sausage (make sure that there is no sugar or artificial ingredients. I found these at Trader Joe’s)
salt and pepper to taste
Remove the sausage from the casings and brown in a skillet. Put the sausage on a plate or in a bowl and set aside. Add the sweet potato and onion to the skillet and cook for about 20 minutes. If there are a lot of brown bits on the bottom, pour a few tablespoons of water into the pan so that the bits come right off the bottom. They add a great flavor to the dish. Be sure that your burner isn’t on high enough to blacken the bits at the bottom. Season the onion and potato with salt and pepper. Once the potatoes are fork tender, add the sausages back into the skillet for two minutes. This is great leftover!
