Potato Hash with Sausage & Fried Egg

Leftover cooked potatoes and peppers form the base of this quick weeknight meal for one. Alternatively, use frozen cubed hash browns and and bell pepper-onion stir-fry mix.

Potato Hash with Sausage & Fried Egg
1 serving


  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided

  • ¼ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage or coleslaw mix

  • 1 turkey breakfast sausage link (2 oz.), casing removed, crumbled

  • 1 ¼ cups roasted potatoes, onions, and peppers (see Associated Recipes)

  • 1 large egg


  1. Heat 2 tsp. oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add green pepper; cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in cabbage (or coleslaw mix) and sausage; cook, stirring, until the sausage is no longer pink and the cabbage is wilted, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add roasted vegetables; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 5 minutes more. Transfer the hash to a plate and keep warm.

  3. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, if needed. Add the remaining 1 tsp. oil; heat over medium heat. Crack egg into the pan and cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes for a runny yolk and 3 1/2 to 4 minutes for a firmer yolk. Serve the egg on top of the hash.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
