Hash!



Thanks to this here hash, from this day (actually Monday) forward- all Mondays in the J-R household shall be Savory Morning Monday! (catchy, yes?) I found that Tofurkey (swoon) has a vegan breakfast sausage, which is fantastic news to me because even though I've been known to fall off the wagon and eat cheese every blue moon, eggs are an absolute no for me- and the faux sausages that I had loved so much from Morningstar Farms have eggs as one of the main ingredients. And, call me cynical- but seeing as they're owned by Kraft, I can't see those coming from free range happy birds.

Anyway, tofurkey's sausage is good- a bit sweet, but it works great in this hash. I feel silly listing directions as it's basically pan fried potatoes with some jazz in it, but here you are anyway. I also made the La Dolce Vegan scrambler which is great mushed into this hash too. A bit of wheat toast on the side and you really don't need to eat until 'Left Over Savory Morning Tuesday'.

• 1 large baking potato, chopped into small cubes
• 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
• 1/2 red onion, diced
• 1 roma tomato, diced
• Tofurkey breakfast sausage
• salt and peppa to taste
• about 1T of oil (mine was too oily with more- I found I cannot cook this in my non non-stick pan without serious stickage)

Sautee the onions in oil for a few minutes, add the potatoes- covering the pan will make them cook faster. Cook until potatoes are firm-soft. Add breakfast sausage, green pepper, tomato and salt and pepper (about 1/2 t each). Cook until peppers are firm-soft and tomatoes are close to falling apart.

Also, if I were to get all Nancy on this (I've been known to individually flip these little potatoes to get all sides evenly cooked), I'd cook the 'sausage' separately to get a little bit of a crust on it before adding it to the potatoes, but with making the scramber as well, I just threw it in. Yup, I can be crazy too.
