Italian Sausage and Sweet Potatoes

This is a 3-ingredient dish that you will love. When I first went grain-free, I thought my life was over! I had to cut so much out of my diet, including fruit, just trying to find relief from my health issues.



How in the world am I suppose to do all of this on a budget?!? Eat lots of meat and veggies….? So I got creative in the kitchen, and realized that even though meat was a major part of my diet, it didn’t have to be the main focal point of each meal.



So I get it… Italian sausage and sweet potatoes don’t just naturally go together, but it was all I had in the house and I needed to go grocery shopping, so I thought “why not?”



Well, it’s one of my favorite dishes and it’s so easy to make! I just take the sausage out of the casing a little at a time and make “meatballs” out of them. It’s perfect and easy!

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do. It can also be easily made in the oven, just bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Enjoy!

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 pound Italian sausage links
  • 6 cups sweet potatoes cubed


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat, add 2 Tbsp. olive oil.
  • Next, add onion and cook.
  • As the onion is cooking, pull sausage out of casing, but you want them to come out like meatballs. Don't pull the whole thing out at one time.
  • Add the sausage "meatballs" to the skillet and cook on both sides until cooked through.
  • Once sausage is cooked, place sausage and onions in a dish, and add the sweet potatoes to the skillet.
  • Add 2 Tbsp. water to the skillet, cover and cook the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes, or until fork tender.
  • Add the sausage and onions back to the skillet and cook until sweet potatoes are golden brown.
  • Do not stir the sweet potatoes in the skillet, or they will become mushy. Just let the potatoes crisp up, then turn gently with a spatula.
  • Add a little salt and pepper and enjoy!
