One of the things I miss a lot is corned beef hash, especially Shopsys in Toronto! Recently I found myself with a couple of sausages left over from my Sausage and Roasted Pepper Bake. You are probably tired of my referencing Pinterest, but really it is an awesome site. The following recipe was straight forward and turned out great for our Sunday breakfast.
Best of all is that it is a one dish meal!!! Hope you will try it…
- 1 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed (pork works well too)
- 3 large russet potatoes, peeled and diced (I used two cans of diced potatoes)
- 1 large sweet onion, diced
- 2 red bell peppers, diced
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (optional)
- 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup of Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
- 4 or 6 large eggs
- Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
- In a large heavy covered (or oven-proof) skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. Add the sausage to the pan, using a wooden spoon to break it up. Sauté until brown – around 5 – 7 minutes. Remove the sausage to a plate lined with paper towel.
- Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and add the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and saute until brown – about 10 minutes or so.
- Add the onion, bell peppers, minced jalapeno, and the smoked paprika. Saute and cook until soft – about 5 – 7 minutes.
- To the potato mixture, add the cooked sausage and the cheese and season to taste. Mix well.
- Crack the eggs onto the hash mixture. Cover with a lid and cook until the eggs are set – about 8 – 10 minutes. In the alternative, if you wanted to cook them in the oven, place the skillet under the broiler for about 5 minutes, until the eggs are done to your liking.
