One skillet dinner for the win. Chicken Sausage Hash with Figs is the easy hash recipe that's hearty and great for brunch or dinner.

How to Make the Chicken Sausage Hash

Here’s a trick for tender potatoes that get a nice crust on the outside. Steam the potatoes first until just barely fork-tender. Then, heat oil in a large skillet and brown the potatoes.

Whisk together the sauce: vinegar and mustard for brightness with honey for sweetness. Add the sauce, sausage, and figs into the potatoes. Add the kale over the top and cook, stirring to cook the kale until wilted. The sauce will form a glaze over all the ingredients cooking in the skillet.

Kale is terrific in this dish because it holds its shape well and cooks down, unlike spinach that, when wilted really goes soft and slippery. Cabbage could be another swap here—it definitely pairs well with potatoes, sausages, and even the honey mustard sauce too.

Either Sun-Maid or Orchard Choice Mission Figs with their jammy flavor that’s intense and sweet, or Golden Figs with a tangy, more delicate sweetness and nutty taste profile could work in this recipe.

Swaps for This Easy Hash Recipe

Chicken apple sausage would be our pick here. Mango chicken sausage is good too! Not into sausage? Add shredded chicken or turkey during step 4 of the recipe. In fact, this could be a delicious way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving instead. We’ve got more ideas to use turkey after Thanksgiving on too.

For a vegetarian option, swap out the chicken sausage for cubed extra-firm tofu or tempeh.
