Think of this apple potato hash as an outline for SO many flavors. While I’m sure partial to the apple sausage + sautéed apple combo, you can mix it up and use a spicier sausage, or change the potato type and use sweet potato.

Let your mind (and pantry!) run with this one and get creative!

But first start with this classic combo. It works super well together. And we’re using frozen spinach which simplifies this dish even more! As always, put an egg on it and enjoy!

  2. Add in the sausage and onion next and saute for 5 minutes. Stir in the spinach to defrost for a couple of minutes. Add the diced apple, paprika, sea salt, and pepper. Heat the apples through, then pile on plates.

Substitution ideas

  • Instead of chicken apple sausage, use a spicier sausage
  • Substitute red potatoes for yukon gold or sweet potato
  • Use fresh spinach or fresh kale instead of frozen
  • Red onion would be great sauted and added in

I make something similar to this, but it’s baked instead of sauteed. I never would have thought to add apple to it, sounds interesting!

I love BFD but the hubs, not so much. But something like this I might be able to just pass off as potatoes and sausage….
