Crispy Bacon and Sweet Potato Hash with Kielbasa Sausage  

This is a beautiful and easy-to-create skillet meal that’s perfect for Fall and to celebrate October as National Pork Month. Feel free to add more of Granny’s Homemade Mustard if you’d enjoy a little more zip! 


1/2 lb. sliced bacon chopped

1 lb. kielbasa, sliced into 1/4” coins 

½ tsp. dried thyme

1-2 Tbs. Granny's Homemade Mustard use your favorite flavor

1 yellow onion, diced

1 red bell pepper seeds and membranes removed, diced

2 sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1/4 inch cubes

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

12 oz. package frozen sweet corn,


12 oz. package frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1 cup  vegetable or chicken broth, used as needed throughout this recipe

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 


In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until browned and crispy, then remove to paper towels to drain; reserve.

Remove all but 1-2 Tbs. of bacon drippings from pan; add kielbasa coins browning them off on each side, then adding them to the reserved bacon.

Add thyme, Granny’s mustard, onion, bell pepper and sweet potatoes to the drippings in the skillet; sauté for a few minutes over medium high heat, stirring often, adding chicken broth to the skillet as needed to keep the ingredients moist and from sticking to the skillet bottom too much.

Stir in the garlic, corn and edamame; cover skillet and continue to cook, stirring often, 12-15 minutes or until sweet potatoes are fork-tender.

Stir in the reserved bacon and kielbasa; season hash to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at once.
