Sunday Breakfast Hash

With our busy “go to work everyday” lifestyle, breakfast typically consists of a quick protein shake or breakfast sandwich to eat during our morning commutes.  It’s functional and filling, but doesn’t give couples the chance to enjoy breakfast with each other.  The weekends should be different, but Saturdays are often filled with chores and activities that, once again, limit our breakfast time together.  So in my household, we hold our Sunday mornings as sacred couple time.  We adore spending time with each other in the kitchen creating new and exciting breakfast dishes together.  This hash is one of the results, and is reminiscent of a breakfast we had together at the Geiser Grand Hotel.  This hash really isn’t overly fancy, but is one of our favorites to enjoy together.

Ingredients for Sunday Breakfast Hash

  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 4.5 ounces canadian bacon, chopped
  • 2 ounces grated pepper jack cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place a cast iron griddle over medium heat to allow to preheat.  Pierce the potatoes with a fork and microwave on high for 3 minutes (this partially cooks them for more even cooking and faster frying time).  Using a towel to hold the very hot potatoes, slice them into 1/4″ slices.

Fry the eggs on the griddle to your liking, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.  Cooking them over-medium is best so that the yolk spreads all over the hash when broken.

Divide the hash into equal portions and plate.  Top with the fried eggs and serve, breaking yolks so they run all over the hash.

  • That is one sexy looking version of hash.

    The larger chunks of the potato and meat….oh yeah.

    Then putting the eggs on top so that the yolk can mix with the grease and make one fine gravy.

    Simple, tasty, yolky…

    I have to go now. I’m beginning to tear up over this.

    • Your comments crack me up Michael! Love it! Keep ‘em coming…
