This Brussel Sprout Hash is a healthy one-pan breakfast option for a crowd, packed with veggies, potatoes, chicken sausage and eggs.
I think I could go through life solely subsiding on eggs. This weekend alone, I consumed a few too many: hard boiled on salads, fried or scrambled for breakfast, and egg whites as a binder for a few recipes. They pack a serious nutritional punch, yolk included!
If I had my wish, I would eat this Brussel Sprout, Potato & Chicken Sausage Hash with an egg on top daily. This was a great way to use up my pile of brussel sprouts- with plenty of vitamins and other goodness, I can’t stop buying them at Sprouts in the giant 2 pound bags.
Combining brussel sprouts and eggs with browned potatoes and chicken sausage (my favorite are the garlic ones from Trader Joe’s!) was the best idea I had to reduce my brussel sprout stash, beyond just roasting them.
We happily noshed on this brussel sprout hash for breakfast for a few days, and I think it’s one of my favorite new breakfast recipes for brunching with people.
- ½ white onion
- 1 medium potato (about 12 ounces)
- 2 chicken sausages
- 1 pound brussel sprouts
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 3-6 eggs (see notes)
- Chop the potato and onion into very small chunks. Cook on medium-high heat in a large skillet with enough oil to avoid sticking for about 10 minutes.
- While that is cooking, sautee and cook chicken sausages chopped into small slices in a separate pan.
- Shred brussels sprouts using a large knife or the shredding blade on the food processor.
- Once the potato is cooked through and browning, add the cooked chicken sausage, shredded brussel sprouts, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sautee on medium for 5 minutes or so until softened and beginning to brown a bit.
- Create several depressions in the pan to crack eggs into. Cover the pan and allow the eggs to cook for 8 minutes - checking a bit before and allowing them to continue cooking until the whites are firm and the yolks are to your liking.
Sub in sweet potatoes or your favorite pork sausage, add cheese to the whole thing or throw in smoked paprika –> make it your own!
With a side of fruit, toast, and plenty of coffee, you’ll have a party in your mouth in no time!
Serve piping hot! This is equally as delicious with sweet potatoes for a paleo version (see my sweet potato & apple hash recipe).
