Southwestern Hash

This Southwestern Hash has lots of potatoes, spicy sausage, vegetables and perfectly cooked eggs!

A simple, flavorful meal that is perfect for breakfast, dinner and everything in between!

Spicy sausage, potatoes, veggies and eggs!

I didn’t always want to be a mom/food blogger.  When I was a kid, I alternated between wanting to be a ballerina, a pediatrician, a teacher and a vet.  I might be stating the obvious, but I never held any of those jobs.  I wonder, what’s the percentage of people who achieve their childhood dream jobs?  I personally don’t know anyone who grew to live out their childhood dreams.  That’s not good or bad, merely an observation.

Spicy hash made with sausage, hash browns, veggies and eggs!

My ten year old wants to be a gymnast/party planner when she grows up.  If you could see what my daughter can do with crepe paper, you’d know that this is quite possibly the perfect profession for her.

My son is quite confident that he will become a famous Lego designer.  He has convinced himself that this job will allow him to have several mansions, sports cars and an unlimited amount of Lego’s to play with in his spare time.

Our little one has entertained several job options.  For a time she wanted to be a knight, then a professional dog pooper scooper, a dancer, and a gymnast.  If you ask her today, she’ll tell you she wants to be an artist.  If you ask her tomorrow, it will undoubtably be something entirely different.  That is the beauty of being 5.

No matter what my little dreamers become, I hope they find joy and passion.  While I never became the graceful ballerina I once dreamed of becoming, I am no less satisfied and fulfilled.  I have found what I am passionate about and what I absolutely love.  I mean, when you can make (and eat) an incredibly flavorful hash like this, how could you NOT be satisfied?  Ah, this hash.  I slightly adapted the Mexican Chorizo Hash from the recent issue of Cooking Light Magazine.  My kids are not that crazy about chorizo so I replaced it with a fajita flavored chicken sausage (your favorite sausage will do just fine in this recipe).  I used fresh bell peppers and Roma tomatoes and added avocado’s right before serving!  The moment you dig into the egg, and the yolk blends with the potatoes and veggies is pure heaven!  This is a fabulous meal for any time of day-don’t limit it to just breakfast!  It was quick to prepare for dinner and thoroughly gratifying!

  2. I’m with your kids — not that crazy about chorizo. But I love this dish!!!!!!! Also — these photos are out of control gorgeous. Awesome recipe Tanya!
    I had no idea what I wanted to be when I was younger. I’m pretty sure I didn’t figure it out until I was like 3 1 or something. I’m with your 5-year-old. Tomorrow I might change my mind. Ha!

  3. This southwestern hash looks amazing and I can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t be satisfied after having this for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Yum!

  4. Like everything you make, this looks tantalizingly good! And your photos…beautiful!

  5. I would be passionate about this hash, too! It looks amazing! At this point I’m pretty sure the only one of my kiddos aspiring to be anything when she grows up is the 7 year old….and she says “teacher”. Hmmmmm :)

    • An admirable profession! Thanks Cathy!

  6. This one makes me nervous … the last time I tried baking eggs over hash, they went from raw to plastic in the blink of an eye. Maybe it’s because I didn’t cover it? :( [#PinItThurs]

    • I was a little concerned too, but it worked perfectly!!

  7. […] Southwestern Hash via Lemons for Lulu – Brunch! Actually… I’d happily have this for any of the meals on any of the days. This is a really easy dish, full of flavor, and ohhhhh those eggs! […]

    Looks delicious!
    I made a similar egg dish recently, but with sweet potatoes (so yummy).
    Thanks so much for sharing!
    Have a great weekend,

  9. This breakfast hash looks so delicious, Tanya. I can’t wait to try it as soon as I get a chance! I dreamed of being a vet as a kid, and I was a veterinary nurse for a while which is pretty close! It only took me a few years to realize it wasn’t for me (right around the time I finished school and become a registered vet tech…) I’m glad you made your way to becoming a food blogger, even if it wasn’t always in your plan! xo

  10. Ooh, this looks really delicious Tanya! I can’t even remember what I wanted to be when I was little. Obviously not a food blogger, we didn’t even have computers yet!
