Sausage and Sweet Potato Dinner. A really quick, easy, and budget-friendly stovetop recipe, suitable as a weekday meal or a gathering! Fantastic flavors using lovely fresh ingredients. Options for the slow cooker and multi cooker too.
Sausage and Sweet Potato Dinner! Oh boy! This meal is packed full of flavor and incredibly easy to make.
Using fresh ingredients (apart from 1 can of tomatoes), for each bite you have, you can really taste the freshness and rich flavors from everything. For the sausages, we used some good quality pork sausages. Of course, you must use your favorite sausages, so feel free to use what your family enjoys the most.
The addition of the fresh cilantro adds a wonderfully refreshing flavor, together with the bell pepper. The chili in the recipe doesn't give the dish any heat but just a gentle taste, so again, feel free to be flexible and add more chili if you prefer a 'hotter' dish.
Sausage and Sweet Potato dinner is a great weeknight meal, it takes less than 30 minutes to have ready so it really is fuss-free. You could also make up a big pot of this and take along to a large gathering. Whatever you decide, it is guaranteed to taste really delicious.
If you wished, you could prep this the night before or in the morning and pop in the slow cooker so it's all ready for when you come home from work.
A tip: Add some chopped bacon for an even bigger flavor too!
Recipe By Beki Heath
6 Sausages. (more if you wish)
2 Medium White Potatoes
4 Medium Sweet Potatoes
1 Red Onion, sliced
1 Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Leek, chopped
½ red Chili Pepper, chopped
¼ Cup Cilantro, chopped
3 Scallions, chopped
1 Garlic clove, minced
2 medium Tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 (400g or 14 oz) can chopped tomatoes in juice
1 teaspoon Mixed Herbs
1. Cut the sausages into 1-inch pieces and fry in a non greased skillet pan until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon, place the sausages on a plate and set aside.
2. Peel and cut the sweet and white potatoes in to bite sized pieces and pre cook in a pan of water until soft, about 10 - 15 minutes, then drain and set aside.
***If making in your slow cooker or Multi cooker, no need to precook the vegetables. Just add the sauteed sausages and remaining ingredients to your slow cooker on low for 4 - 6 hours, or pressure cook on high for 20 minutes in your Instantpot / multicooker.
3. Whilst the potatoes are cooking, prepare all the vegetables by chopping or slicing as indicated in the ingredients list.
4. Add a drop of olive oil in to the same skillet and over a medium heat, add the vegetables and sautee until soft.
Then add the potatoes to the pan, together with the sausages, cilantro, garlic and tomatoes.
Season with salt and pepper and combine everything. Turn the heat down to low and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes with a lid on the pan.
5. Serve as it is or with some nice warm bread from the oven!

I made the recipe with the quantities provided and i dont know what size pan you where useing but this didnt even fit in my 12 inch pan lol. I had to split it up. But it tasted realy good
I really like your Sausage and Sweet Potato Dinner recipe and have made it twice in one month with some alterations to fit what I had on hand. One time I used a pound of bulk sausage and the other time I used Ehrlich Smoked Sausage. I didn’t have any green or chili peppers or cilantro so I put in some mild salsa instead and it worked great! I also added carrots and a little coconut oil and used whatever onions or shallots and tomatoes or tomato sauce I had on hand. Each time was different but both were very good. My goal was to use up some sweet potatoes in a dish that was not sweet and your recipe was just what I was looking for! Thanks!
Hi Joanne, I love hearing how creative you’ve been with the recipe. I love how versatile it is and it is great for when you need to use up odds and ends from your fridge too! Keep enjoying the recipe and have fun cooking!
