Farmhouse Hash With Poached Eggs
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.

- Ready In:
- 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.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

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. :)
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.
