This is easy,cheap and very tasty, can't get better than that! You can use any type of sausage you prefer. I also nuke the potatoes for about 2-3 minutes, then cut up, before adding to the mix. Use any spices or herbs you want, I love it with fresh rosemary. I usually poach my eggs in a skillet, sprayed with Pam before adding the water, but use which ever method works for you.

- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1⁄2 medium yellow onion, diced
- 1 carrot, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 2 large red potatoes, small diced
- 1⁄2 lb sweet Italian sausage, diced
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 4 eggs
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, sausage, paprika, garlic, red pepper flakes,and salt and pepper, to taste.
- Saute stirring frequently, until the potatoes and carrots are tender, and the sausage is cooked through, about 12 minutes.
- Bring a medium pot of water to a simmer over low heat and add the vinegar. Crack an egg into a small bowl and carefully slide it into the simmering water. Quickly repeat with remaining eggs.
- Using a slotted spoon, carefully corral the white of each egg around its yolk. Poach the eggs until the whites are firm, or to the desired degree of doneness, about 3 to 5 minutes.
- Divide the hash among 4 serving plates and top the hash with a poached egg. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
Loved this great recipe! I don't care for onion so used some red bell pepper instead; I also used turkey sausage. I've never poached an egg like this before but they came out great. Hearty and delicious, served this as "breakfast-for-dinner" and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
I love poached eggs, but don't make them very often. This recipe is perfect for poached eggs. It reminded me somewhat of German Fries which is a popular breakfast in Ohio. I loved how the yolk of the egg would run down onto the sausage/potato mixture when you cut into the egg. This makes for a tasty and hearty breakfast. Made for Best of 2010 Cookbooks Game.
What a terrific recipe! I made this for dinner tonight and we all loved it. I doubled it because the guys are big eaters and there was only about 1/2 cup left. What a great idea to nuke the potatoes first. It really worked and sped up the cooking time. I used a little fresh sage and it worked great with my N.Y. style sausage. I didn't poach the eggs cuz the guys don't like them so I just did them over easy. I'll certainly put this in my tried and true file because I know it will be requested time and again. Thanks so much Scoutie for another fine recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
