Sweet Potato + Breakfast Sausage Tacos with Green Chile Eggs

I could have tacos for every meal of the day. Just because they have eggs + sausage in them, doesn't mean they are just for breakfast.


The flavors from the sausage - sage, rosemary, ginger + red peppers all blend nicely with the fresh herbs, green chilies, eggs + sweet potatoes. I love topping my tacos with more green chilies, sliced cherry tomatoes, Monterey jack cheese + hot sauce. Squeeze a lime over the top + dig in. So good - anytime of the day!


And before I go, let's chat about this breakfast sausage. I used Pork Breakfast Sausage from Covey Rise Farms in Ohio. Charlie + Kerissa are raising their animals all on pasture. It's amazing to watch all that they do for the animals. They are living a beautiful life on the property while Charlie + Kerissa pay attention to all the important details of raising them all the way to harvest. It's amazing to watch - check out their Instagram account here. AND if you enter in your zip code, you can learn how to order pastured raised meat delivered directly to your home.

Using the same sauce pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Mix the eggs with the milk in a small bowl. Add to these sauce pan with the butter.
