I didn’t post yesterday because I was busy wrestling my kitchen cabinets into submission and getting organized and unpacked. It was exhausting but now that it’s over I love my cute new jars and labels. I’m enjoying opening the cabinet doors and seeing everything organized and looking pretty – I’ll be opening the doors a lot today so I can remember what that looks like because by Monday I’m pretty sure they will have succumbed to the forces of kitchen entropy and be in chaos again. That’s usually how it goes anyway. So last night my brain was pretty much broken (more than usual!) and the idea of cooking wasn’t high on my list but I had been fantasizing about this hash which I saw last week from The Kitchn
. I immediately pinned it onto “I am SO making this!”
board on Pinterest and have been dying to make it ever since. Breakfast for dinner is always a hit at my house so I went with it and it was even better than I had imagined! This is my own version which is lightened up with turkey breakfast sausage. I also added some russet potatoes to cut the sweetness a bit, and seasoned with sage and thyme instead of rosemary. This was delicious all on it’s own – but of course I topped it with poached eggs because everything tastes better with a poached egg on it! This hash was no exception – really really good!
1 large sweet potato, chopped
3 medium russet or red potatoes, chopped
2 Tbl olive oil
1 tsp ground sage
1 tsp dried thyme
1 lb turkey breakfast sausage
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled & minced
1 Tbl fresh thyme leaves
Kosher salt & pepper to taste
Place the potatoes in a bowl and toss with olive oil, sage, dried thyme, salt and pepper. Spread out on a cookie sheet and roast in the oven for about 35 minutes at 375 degrees (f). Turn occasionally with a spatula while roasting. Meanwhile, put the turkey sausage and onions in a large saute pan and cook on medium heat for 5 – 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another few minutes, being careful not to scorch it. Remove from the heat and set aside. When your potatoes are done to your liking remove them from the oven and add them to your saute pan. Turn the heat to medium high and cook the hash for several minutes – longer if you want it to get really brown and crispy. Remove from the heat and add the fresh thyme leaves. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if necessary. Eat alone or serve with eggs, toast, pancakes or any of your other favorite breakfast foods! And coffee….LOTS of coffee!
