The Perfect Breakfast Potato & Egg Hash

Potato & Egg Hash

I love making breakfast.  Granted, it’s not always possible with a hectic schedule. But when things work out, it’s a no brainer that we are going big on it. Like this Breakfast Potato & Egg Hash recipe that I’m going to share with you today.

This dish is loaded with potatoes, sausage, mushrooms, asparagus, herbs, eggs and cheese.  It’s like everything but the kitchen sink kinda thing!  But since tastes vary, feel free to sub ingredients should you feel you need to, I won’t mind!

I’ve made this recipe a few times and I’ve held back sharing it only because I have not been able to get good photos.  That is either due to hunger impatience or bad weather, which equals to bad photos most often than not.

Today though, is a different story.  It was quiet, I was alone in the kitchen and so I snuck a few shots in before the smell woke ’em all up.  Sneaky of me, I know but it brought me here!

Let me tell you a little bit about this breakfast dish.  As I mentioned already, it is versatile, so please feel free to sub ingredients.  For example, if you are not big on sausage, use bacon or ham or maybe even a combination of them.  Or Chorizo!  Oh, I’m using that next time because Chorizo Potatoes are fantastic!!!

Sur La Table

If you don’t like asparagus, then use another veggie of your choice or omit it all together.  Really, customize it to your liking.  I’m definitely okay with it and as a matter of fact, I’d love to hear your suggestions for it!

The potatoes can be peeled or not but if you’re not going to peel them, make sure to give them a good scrub to get that dirt removed.  After dicing them, rinse the starch off.  Use whatever potato you like, I personally love using Red Potatoes but again, your call.

When the sausage is ready, chop it up and set aside.  Saute the mushroom in a separate saucepan and make sure to season it with salt and pepper.  If you’re using asparagus, don’t over cook it.  It’s best to have it with a little crunch, in my opinion.  Add it towards the end of cooking the mushrooms.

I recommend spraying the baking dish with non stick then placing it inside the oven to heat up a few minutes.  This will speed up the baking process as opposed to having to wait for a cold dish to heat up and get cooking.

The eggs.  I have tried this with a single egg in each well and I’ve also placed two eggs in them.  Make however many wells you’ll need for each egg you want to add.  It’s really your choice as to how hungry you are or how many servings you need.  If you’re going with the two eggs, just add a couple minutes to the baking time but keep an eye on it.  The eggs turn out in a soft boiled egg consistency with a slightly creamy egg yolk.

Yum, all this typing is making me hungry for it again!!!

Instructions
  1. Measure out all of your ingredients. Prepare a large baking dish (9x13) by spraying with non stick cooking spray and set aside. Dice potatoes then rinse and pat them dry using paper towels. Cook sausage according to directions. Chop and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes and season with oregano, sage, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Cover. Stir occasionally.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt butter and saute mushrooms for approximately 7-8 minutes. Add asparagus, season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir and continue cooking for another 5 minutes on medium heat. At this time, pop the baking dish while empty, into the oven to heat up, approximately 5-7 minutes.
  4. When potatoes are just about done (check with a fork for tenderness), add sausage and mushroom mix. Stir to combine well. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven and pour potato mix into it.
  5. Make 4 wells in the potatoes. Crack an egg (or two) in each well. Season ONLY eggs with salt and pepper. Return baking dish to oven and cook for approximately 8-9 minutes, or until there is very little "jiggle" of the eggs. (SEE NOTE ON EGGS)
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese all over. Continue baking for another 1-2 minutes or just until cheese is melted. Remove from oven. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*Potatoes:  I used Red.  Leaving the skin on or off is up to you, it is good either way.

**Herbs:  If you are using fresh herbs, use 1 tsp.  If using dried/ground herbs, use 1/2 tsp.

***Sausage:  I used precooked links and cooked according to directions.  Feel free to use whatever flavor you prefer as they come in several or use cooked and crumbled bacon.

****Eggs:  IMPORTANT: When baking, look for when the white part is no longer "jiggly" or has very little of it. That's how you'll know when its about ready.  Add cheese at this time and then pop back in for another minute or two for cheese to melt.  Should you over bake them, they will have more of a hard boiled egg texture but they'll still be delicious!
