Skillet hash

frying pan with potatoes and an egg


Canola or olive oil, for cooking
1/2 red pepper, seeded and diced, or 1/2 cup chopped leftover veggies
1/2 cup chopped Maple Leaf Natural Top Dogs, chopped ham or crumbled sausage
2 cups chopped cooked potatoes (white and/or sweet)
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 eggs, fried or poached
Chopped fresh parsley and/or green onions, for garnish


Set a medium cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add a generous drizzle of oil. Cook the pepper and hot dogs, ham or sausage until soft and golden on the edges; transfer to a plate or bowl with a slotted spoon. Add another drizzle of oil to the pan and sauté the potatoes, letting them sit for a minute or two at a time to develop a nice golden crust, until they’re crunchy and golden. Return the pepper and hot hogs, ham or sausage to the pan and season with salt and pepper.

In another small pan, fry or poach the eggs to your liking and serve them overtop. If you like, garnish with chopped parsley or green onions.

Serves 2.
