  • large skiller


  • 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 2 apples cut into 1/2 inch pieces. I like to use Fuji or Granny Smith
  • 4 large pre-cooked chicken sausage links if Whole30/Paleo is important, make sure sausage is compliant
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup broth


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add onions, sweet potatoes and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent and potatoes are fork tender. About 10 minutes
  • Stir in the apples, garlic, thyme, cinnamon and sliced sausage. Cook for 5 minute.
  • Add broth to skillet and bring to a boil. Cook until broth has evaporated. About 5 minutes
  • Serve and enjoy warm. Allow leftovers to cool and store in fridge for up to 3 days.
