giada hash

time for another post about breakfast.


while we were eating the aforementioned (and delicious!) waffles using our new waffle maker, we were flipping through channels and found giada de laurentiis cooking up some yummy breakfast foods. she also made waffles, btw, but they weren’t gluten free.

anyways, she made this awesome looking hash with spinach and bacon.

since we had already had our beloved waffles, i decided to change things up and try this hash using our own ingredients for a simple and wonderful sunday breakfast. i took some mental notes of her prep and technique and it turned out pretty great! next time, we will have to make sure we have some spinach on hand, although i’m sure matt was very glad that we didn’t have that!

it included:

1/2 large potato, diced

2 pieces bacon

1/4 of a medium onion, diced

1 clove garlic, diced

1/4 of a small bell pepper, diced

1/2 kielbasa sausage link, cut into bite size pieces

2 eggs

and boy, was it great! i first fried two pieces of bacon in a large skillet then removed to a paper towel. then added a touch of olive oil, the potatoes and sausage to the skillet and let the potatoes and kielbasa sausage cook in the bacon grease and olive oil until the potatoes are golden brown. next, combine the onion, garlic, and bell pepper with the other hash ingredients and cook until soft. once softened, create two “wells” and crack an egg into each well for it to cook, keeping the burner at medium heat. once the eggs are cooked, remove and serve!

yum! a word of caution: this had our house, clothing, and hair smelling of bacon/sausage for most of the rest of the day. it wouldn’t be so bad, except for the fact that we had leftover smell without the actual leftovers. regardless, it was a different and fun breakfast, one i’m sure we’ll enjoy many times over!

thanks for the inspiration giada!
