What You'll Need for this Recipe
Making sheet pan breakfast the whole family will love starts with a simple ingredient list. Here are the highlights.
Sweet Potatoes are loaded with nutrients and add fiber to your breakfast plate. I typically include Jewel Sweet potatoes in this recipe but use any variety of sweet potato you like.
Apples add more fiber and sweet or tart flavor to the mix, depending on which kind you pick. I love Honeycrisp apples here but most any apple variety would work.
Sausage adds protein and savory breakfast vibes. I use precooked sausage patties but you could also use links. Go for the brand you typically have with breakfast.
Walnuts break up the tender texture trend with some crunch. I have made this recipe with a few other kinds of nuts but walnut is the best option, in my opinion.
Raisins get a bad wrap but I love them in this sheet pan hash. They hold it down on sweetness so there's no need to add sugar or any other sweetener to the mix. Either flame or golden raisins will work.

Is breakfast hash PCOS friendly?
Balancing fiber, protein, healthy fat, and complex carbs is key to managing my blood sugar and hormone balance. This healthy hash ticks all those boxes. It's is a great PCOS-friendly breakfast idea for cold days, though I recommend doubling the sausage to add more protein or adding a side of eggs.
And if you are gluten-free, doing Whole30 or even paleo, this hash is also compliant!
