So I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely love breakfast food. I learned to make omelets at a young age and thought it was the coolest thing ever to customize for my parents and any house guests. Now pancakes and waffles…eh, I’ll take em – but I prefer the very traditional biscuits, eggs, sausage, bacon and occasionally hash browns!
Any chance we have to get brunch, I’m all in! But I’m amazed when my husband will opt for a burger or sandwich instead of breakfast food! Especially if there’s a Bloody Mary involved! A few times when I’ve been looking at the semi-empty pantry and find myself at a loss for dinner plans, the hubby has suggested breakfast for dinner. Shockingly, I’ve never gone for it. Until recently when I tried my hand at a skillet hash.
This is so easy to throw together and it’s incredibly delicious! The potatoes definitely fill you up and the kielbasa gives this such a great flavor. Next time, I might add some chopped bacon as well, cause you know, why not?
Skillet Hash (serves 2 / 11 WW points per serving)
1 1/2 medium potatoes
1 Tbsp. butter
4 oz. Turkey kielbasa
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 Tbsp. dried parsley
1 scallion, chopped
Tabasco (as needed)
“I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” spray (as needed)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap potatoes in foil and bake for 45 minutes. Once they have cooled, dice into large chunks. Keep oven on.
Chop kielbasa into medium pieces. Melt butter in a medium skillet on medium heat and cook kielbasa.
Add onion to kielbasa, along with caraway seed.
Add potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and flatten hash into a single layer.
Turn heat to medium-high and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned. Working in sections (4 is good) flip and brown the other sides. I used a little butter spray here to keep flavor and moisture.
At this point, if you have a cast iron skillet, crack 4 eggs (evenly distributed, of course) on top of the hash and add pan to the oven.
If you’re a bad southerner like me do not own a cast iron skillet, locate 2 small baking dishes/pans and divide hash evenly between them. Crack 2 eggs in each and add to oven.
You will bake this for about 10-12 minutes, until eggs are just set.
Remove from oven and top with parsley and scallions. Add a few shakes of Tabasco and whatever else your heart desires.
Dig in and enjoy being a rebel by having breakfast for dinner…
