Prep the ingredients the night before and you can have this breakfast ready quickly for any morning where you’d like to break the routine a little bit. A very yummy change of pace and proof positive that today is a new day!
Easy Breakfast Hash
1 frozen safe sausage patty per person, about 1/4 cup of sausage. (We like Jones All Natural to avoid gluten, dairy, soy, and other fillers. Jimmy Dean Natural and Wegman’s Natural have been digested well, too)
1 cup diced potatoes, diced small (do the night before and cover with water in refrigerator to keep from browning)
1/4 cup each of diced bell peppers and onions (chop in advance to save time)
1 egg per person, whisked (optional – omit if egg allergy and add some mushrooms or zucchini)
1 sun-dried tomato, diced
a handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
2 scallions, chopped
pickled jalapenos (optional)
1/4 cup canola-based Mayo (such as Hellman’s Canola Mayo) mixed with 1 Tablespoon taco sauce and a dash or two of ground chipotle.
Heat about 3 Tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add potatoes.
In another, smaller skillet or pot, add the frozen sausage with water and cook until finished. If the sausage is already cooked, such as the Jones brand, this won’t take very long. If you are cooking raw sausage, begin cooking it about 5 minutes before starting the potatoes.
Back to the large skillet, cook the potatoes for only a minute or two (longer if you cut them into larger pieces). Add the peppers and onions and cook until onions are beginning to turn translucent and potatoes are turning golden brown. Add the sausage.
Scramble the eggs in the pan that had the sausage. When finished, add the scrambled eggs to the hash.
Serve on plates and top with sun-dried tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and taco mayo sauce. Of course, the kids like it with ketchup. 🙂
