A spicy sweet medley of ground turkey sausage, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, and apples tossed together for a mouth-watering hash

Yield: 

8 servings

Ingredients: 

Sausage Ingredients:
2 pounds lean (93/7) ground turkey
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
4 teaspoons ground sage
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice, optional
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or more to taste), optional
2 cups peeled and diced apples

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (or cut into fries)*
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt

1 pounds brussels sprouts, washed (cut these in half if bigger than bite-size)
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup maple syrup (add in step 6)

Instructions: 

1. Combine sausage ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Refrigerate for a few minutes while you prepare the veggies, or up to a couple days, if you're planning ahead.

2. In another bowl, toss together the diced sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup oil, and 1 teaspoon salt. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet that has been greased or lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

3. In yet another bowl, toss together the brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread mixture onto another baking sheet or a 9x13-inch pan that has been greased or lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake both pans of vegetables for 30-40 minutes, stirring once or twice during baking. Vegetables are done when they are soft inside. Test with a fork for doneness; one pan may be done sooner than the other.

5. While vegetables are baking, cook the sausage mixture in crumbles in a large heavy pan over medium heat until done.

6. When the vegetables and meat are completely cooked, toss everything together in a big bowl, stir in the maple syrup, and serve hot.

Tammy's Review: 

This Turkey Sausage Sweet Potato Hash is one of my favorite winter meals. I have to  stop myself from filling my plate a second time! The leftovers are just as good re-warmed, so I make a huge batch and it lasts for several days in the fridge.

The inspiration for this combination of ingredients came from my friend Nichelle, who served this for a New Year's Day brunch at her house in 2012. A big bowl of this Turkey Hash fed both our families, 13 people in all. I begged her to write down a recipe for me. She insisted that she just threw some things together and "there isn't really a recipe..." but I knew I didn't want to forget such a tasty meal.

If you like sweet and spicy, you'll love Turkey Sausage Sweet Potato Hash!
