A few years ago, I came across this recipe on Pinterest. It contained lots of things we like (potatoes! sausage! peppers!) and seemed like a good one to try. Now that I’ve made it a couple dozen times (!) I’ve pretty much perfected it for our family and everybody gets excited when the answer to “What’s for dinner?” is “Hash!” The hubby especially. Because meat.
Here’s how I do it:
Get yourself 3 large baking potatoes and wash and cube them up like you’re going to make potato salad. Heat a 12″ skillet with a tablespoonful or so of grapeseed oil, and throw those potatoes in there and cook them until you can stick a fork in them easily. You’ll want to add some salt and pepper, more grapeseed oil if things start to stick. Move them around every now and then, but a nice browning is awesome if you can get it. You can also throw in a clove or two of garlic if you want some extra flavor.
Meanwhile, do a large dice on three bell peppers and a yellow onion. I like to be colorful with this! When your potatoes are all done, remove them to a bowl of some sort, and throw your peppers and onions in. Let them cook for a minute or two while you cut up your sausages.
I use two lbs of smoked sausage for our hash. It’s a LOT but everybody wants the meat and usually if there are leftovers, they are devoid of meat. Because people literally pick it out of the skillet. Believe me, my skillet is SUPER FULL with all of this yummy goodness. Because the sausages are pre-cooked, I just make sure they get heated through (preferably a little browning because YUM) before I add the potatoes back into the skillet and let it cook a few minutes to bring the flavors all together.
There you have it…. HASH! A family favorite at my house. Enjoy!
