Honestly when I get hungry, I feel like one of those children of the corn kids. I’m ready to sacrifice every and anything to the god in the vast field of my rolling hungriness.
Okay after reading that sentence, I am clearly hungry now.
And it was a hunger such as this that sent me to the kitchen one fine Tuesday morning. I had a hunkering for some naize breakfast foods. I open the freezer looking for some bacon. Alas! I was all out. But there were sausages. Score! I look on the table for bread and saw one measly bottom of the loaf piece of bread looking like it knew it’s life was a failure. There were eggs for which I thank God. But that was pretty much it. No bread, no bagels, no muffin, no bacon. Oh how was I to have this breakfast!!!
I spied some potatoes in the corner and my life came together in my mind.
I always keep crushed garlic in the fridge and mostly have some leftover chopped onions. I threw together this potato sausage hash and topped it with a yummy egg done over hard.
My life was complete.
Try it out and enjoy! it’s become a favorite with my daughter and I always serve it when I have guests over. It quick, easy and delicious!
This works really well as an alternative to hash browns for breakfast or can even used to compliment a steak dinner.
