For 2: Chorizo Hash
I feel like a hash is the south's frittata...or something like that. Potatoes, veggies, meat, eggs, same ingredients, different way of putting it together. The Hash process is simple and the ingredients can be as basic or fancy as you like, or what you have around for that matter. Sports Dude (I used to call him the FH future husband, but now he is the husband, but that sounds a little lame, so I am going to go with Sports Dude) anyway back to the point, he LOVES chorizo so anything that bleeds greases (is that a word?) orange is good in his book. The potatoes and onions are slightly spicy (and orange) from the chorizo, but the cheese and egg create a creamy, savory, smoothness that is just perfect for mellowing out the spice. This was great for Saturday morning brunch, and I was so full I didn't eat again until Saturday dinner. I think next time I want to make a hash with Italian Sausage and mozzarella; doesn't that sound good? I'll keep you updated... What are your favorite hash ingredients? Is there a breakfast meat that you LOVE?
Sincerely Loving Food,
Boil potatoes for about 10 minutes to start the cooking process (not cook all the way through) then dice onion and potatoes
Brown sausage in a large skillet, remove to a plate, add onions and potatoes to skillet (do not remove any drippings from the meat) and cook until onions are tender and translucent and potatoes are tender, about 7-10 minutes . Add sausage back to the pan and stir it all together. Turn off the heat and let the flavors mingle in the skillet while you cook 2 eggs to your liking.
Place a healthy (as in big, not good for you) portion of the sausage mixture on a plate
