Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Skillet

I call this a breakfast skillet, but I think we’ve enjoyed this dish more as a dinner than a breakfast meal! I’ve been loving cooking more with sweet potatoes. They are naturally sweet, so I actually prefer to turn them into a savory dish 100% of the time. You can add a ton of great flavor with simple spices from your spice rack. Smoked paprika and chili powder are a staple in my cupboard. If you don’t have smoked paprika, definitely stock up on some, it adds such a great flavor vs. regular paprika. You can find a lot of delicious sausage flavors that would work great in this dish. I like the Aidells brand of chicken apple sausage because there is no added sugar, and all natural ingredients, and it’s delish!

I love to enjoy my bowl with a nice ripe avocado and hot sauce! Enjoy!
