Sausage Hash n’ Eggs

Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsAmong the many endearing qualities my studly husband has, his love for potatoes is one of them.  This man loves potatoes. Like so much that when he was a young broke 20something working his way up the tech ladder, his diet consisted of potatoes. And garlic. Maybe a little meat here and there when he could afford it, but it was mostly just potatoes. He’s fry them with garlic for breakfast, dice them and mix them with a can of corn for lunch, and then mash them (with more garlic) for dinner. He literally lived off of potatoes; and he didn’t mind a minute of it (hey, it’s better than Ramen, right?)  One of the first breakfasts he made me was a version of this very dish, and if he had it his way, he’d happily eat this for breakfast everyday.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsNow, it’s one of our go-to weekend breakfasts.  This particular morning, we had some Italian sausage we’d cooked up the night before (left over from Dan’s birthday party weekend) and some extra sharp white cheddar Tillamook cheese that my MIL had brought back to me as a gift from her visit to the Tillamook factory with Dan.  Sooo delicious.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsSo I diced up the potatoes nice and small with some onion and garlic and let those cook together on high with some butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  This will cook them nice and fast and make them nice and crispy.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsThen, I diced up some pepper and the rest of the sausage.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsSince the peppers will cook quickly (I like them to keep a little bit of crunch) and the sausage was already cooked, I added them to the pan when the potatoes were just a few minutes away from being done.IMG_6447While they cooked away, I shredded up some of the delicious white cheddar,Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and Eggsand then added it to the pan once everything was cooked and turned off the heat so the cheese could get all ooey and gooey delicious with the hash.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsThe final touch- some poached eggs.  Admittedly, I’m a terrible egg poacher.  I’ve tried sooo many different ways to get that beautifully round shape, but it never happens. So then Bon Appetit told me this awesome trick with using a sieve!  …but I still messed those eggs up too.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsBut while I made yet another attempt at pretty little eggies, I plated up the deliciously cheesy hash.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsAnd topped it with my eggs. My not so pretty eggs.Start your day with some Hearty Sausage Hash and EggsBut, ugly as they were, they were still super tasty!

We gobbled this up before heading out for a bike ride to the tennis courts.  The perfect weekend breakfast!

  1. 2 - 3 Russet potatoes, diced
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1 green bell pepper, diced
  4. 1 white onion, minced
  5. 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  6. 1/3 cup of shredded cheese
  7. 2 cooked sausage links, sliced
  8. 1 tablespoon of butter
  9. Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. In a large saute pan, heat butter on medium and add garlic and onion and cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
  2. Stir and add potatoes and turn heat up to medium to high.  Stir occasionally so the potatoes and onions don't burn, but not too much so the potatoes can get a nice crisp edge.  Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. When potatoes are almost done, add peppers and sausage and cook for another couple of minutes until sausage is heated and peppers are cooked but still a bit crunchy.  Add more salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Put water on to boil with a splash of white vinegar for poached eggs.  Or cook eggs any other way preferred - sunny side up, fried, etc.
  5. Add cheese and remove pan from heat.
  6. Poach eggs (or cook however you please), then mix hash with melted cheese, plate, top with eggs, and serve!  This will make 2 large plates of hash.
Served From Scratch
The PERFECT breakfast. Crispy potatoes, peppers, sausage, and cheese all topped with a runny yolked egg. Breakfast is served!

  • I’m with your HUBBY!!! You knowwwww I love potatoes…. (which is why when we had our date I got Poutine AND potato skins… oops…) I actually got this update on my phone email and didn’t let myself look at the post until after I had lunch because I knew it would make me too hungry… I mean sausage hash… and EGGS… (okay my tactic didn’t work. I’m hungry.) Looks amazing, along with all of your pics (duh) !

  • AHHH! I could use a plate of this right now! I love potatoes and to add sausage and eggs to it, topped with a beautiful poached egg (I can’t poach an egg for the life of me), is perfection indeed. Forget breakfast, I could have this any time of the day.

  • Tracy, I made this AWESOME recipe for MY Dan’s birthday dinner Tues. Nite. Breakfast is his favorite meal, so I knew he would like it. We both LOVED it! I used chicken Italian sausage from Fred’s for less fat. It was to die for. It will be a regular meal for us in the future! I SO enjoy your blog, love the little stories that go with the recipes. However, I can see danger of weight gain in the future. Your recipes are WAY too yummy! Might try the chocolate pudding next. 🙂
