  2. Once oil is hot, add the diced potatoes and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. Add in the diced onion, minced garlic, and spices
  4. Cook an additional 5 minutes until onions are translucent and sweet potatoes are about done, stirring occasionally
  5. Add and stir the sliced sausage into the skillet and additional oil if needed
  6. Let cook for 2 minutes, then adding in the spinach
  7. Fold the spinach into the skillet as it wilts down, about 3 minutes
