Roasted sweet potato and Thai sausage hash with onsen eggs


Whether I buy or make sausage , 99 % of the time , I'll eat it with rice . The 1 % ? I'll use it for fried rice lol 

In my mind , pork sausage and rice goes hand in hand . I need to change my eating habits . Eating/cooking sausage with anything beside my favorite grain never cross my mind . Nah , I remember making this tomato and sausage combo last time but wait , after I've finished taking photos of it , I actually eaten it with rice !

Sweet potato ?! I usually eat sweet potato , steamed , on its own or dip in condensed milk .

Sweet potato and Thai sausage together ?! 

The spicy and flavorful Thai sausage goes really well with the sweet potato ! If sweet potato is not available , use potato instead . Of  course , rice and sausage pairing is still my first choice but this is a fantastic and really easy dish if you want a filling yet more healthier option . Okay , more healthier if there's no sausage in it ! Yeah , right !

I stumbled upon onsen egg when I made Yoshinoya-style beef bowl , now I couldn't get enough of it ^___^''

What food combination are you craving right now ?!


Recipe adapted from The Kitchn / Onsen egg from Cookpad

Serves 2-4 

450 grams yellow and purple sweet potato , peeled and cut into about 2 cm dices 
130 grams sliced shallots 
150 grams homemade Thai sausage or any store-bought sausage / chorizo
4 tablespoons chopped / snipped coriander plus extra for garnish
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
about 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
freshly ground black pepper  

* Preheat oven to 220°C / 425°F .

* In a rimmed baking sheet , mix together diced sweet potatoes , olive oil , salt and black pepper . Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes , cooking time depends on the thickness and the variety of the sweet potatoes . 

* Meanwhile , add some olive oil in a pan and cook shallots over medium heat for 10 minutes , stirring from time to time , transfer to a plate and set aside . Pan-fry , add more oil if necessary , sausage over low heat until lightly brown , take out from the pan , let cool slightly and cut into 2 cm thick slices .

* After 25 minutes , take out the potato mixture from the oven and toss in the shallots and the sausage slices , put it back in the oven and bake for another 10 minutes . 

* For the onsen egg , boil water in a small saucepan when water boils turn off heat , add in the eggs , and let stand for 10 minutes .

* Transfer potato and sausage hash into a serving dish , top with onsen eggs , sprinkle with coriander and serve immediately .

  4. Hi Anne,

    80% of our sausages usually go to BBQ... 20% is to make sausage rolls. 100% go to my husband and son's tummies. Me? Don't like sausages :p

    But I like the eggs and sweet potato in this dish :D
