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.
This recipe was featured in the recent Food Network Magazine March 2012, by Sandra Lee. It is delicious and I made it for dinner instead of breakfast. I used a smoked pork sausage rather than the Italian and white potatoes. Since I hadn't seen the recipe here first, I followed the recipe in the magazine. I will definitely pre-cook the spuds next time, as it took way longer to cook then the published directions stated. :)
