Recipe: Sweet Potato, Apple + Chicken Sausage Skillet
I love a good weekend breakfast. You know, the kind where you sleep in a little bit, spend a little bit too much time waking up (but hey, it's the weekend!), and take the morning slowly, first a mug of coffee and a longer, lazy breakfast that takes a little extra time than your usual toast-or-smoothie routine- but is so worth the wait.
This Autumn-inspired skillet meal is exactly that. It doesn't take much time at all coming together once the ingredients are chopped and ready to go (perfect meal prep material), but the extra time spent chopping is worth the the sweet and savory combination that hits the spot on a lazy Saturday at home. This recipe serves about four, but it's easy to save and reheat leftovers, simply topping with an extra fresh sunny-side-up egg the following day.
