A hearty breakfast hash fit for a lumberjack - nicely spiced hash browns with sausage, onions, and bell peppers.
  • 2-4 Tablespoons sunflower or olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 green peppers, diced
  • ¼ lb. kielbasa, diced
  • 5-6 russet potatoes, scrubbed well and diced
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 6 fried eggs
  • hot sauce, optional
  1. Heat a large, 12-inch cast iron (or other non-stick) skillet over medium-high heat. Add a few tablespoons of oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the diced onions and cook until they start to soften. Add the green pepper and continue cooking over medium-high heat until they start to brown. Next add the sausage. Allow it to get nice and crispy. Transfer everything to a bowl and keep warm while cooking the potatoes.
  2. Add a little more oil to the pan, then add the potatoes and season well with salt and pepper. Cook, turning the potatoes every few minutes with a spatula, until they start to brown. Add the onions, peppers and sausage back to the skillet. Sprinkle with smoked paprika and garlic powder. Continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed.
  3. Serve with sliced tomato and a fried egg on top, if desired, and a few shakes of hot sauce.
