Let me share a little tip with you… when you’re in need of a breakfast hash recipe, do not type out the word “hash” in your search engine. Why? Because you will end up with a list of results that’s completely different than what you were intending. (Yes, I’m 100 percent speaking from experience). I especially don’t recommend it when using a work computer.

But I’m guessing you’re here for my spicy rosemary sausage and potato breakfast hash… and not for lessons on how to use google…

This hash – excuse me – breakfast hash is fullll of flavor. And not just a teeny tiny baby pinch of flavor. I’m talkin’ BIG flavor. HUGE.

And please don’t get me wrong, when I say flavor, I don’t mean that this is super spicy – it’s moderately spicy, but if you’re not a fan of heat, you can easily adapt the recipe by removing the rib from the serrano pepper or by nixing it completely.

When I say flavor, I mean the way that the ingredients and spices blend together in this dish. The garlic, paprika and fresh rosemary come together in a way that only they can, you know?

I love using fresh rosemary in everything that I make this time of year. It’s so fragrant and woodsy and I know other people might tell you to only use a little because it’s so strong… but not me. Most recipes call for what, a mere teaspoon? BAH. I’ll take that teaspoon and make it a TABLESPOON. No, not enough. Let’s make it TWO tablespoons. (Um, based on my cooking methods, I’m pretty sure I’d have a gambling problem if I was a gambler).

So yes. This breakfast calls for TWO tablespoons of fresh rosemary. And even that might not be enough. (I’m kidding, it’s enough… ).

Don’t make a bland and boring hash. Make a flavorful hash. Breakfast hash, that is.

    I used this with leftover boiled potatoes–always a good thing to have on hand. By browning the sausage first, I didn’t need any additional oil. I removed the browned sausage from the pan, and used the residual fat to saute the veggies, then added diced cooked potatoes and sausage. Serano chilies have a lot of heat, so I used a diced poblano with the onion–not quite spicy enough, so I added a T of chopped pickled jalapeno. This was very tasty, and not only as side dish with eggs, but when combined with scrambled egg, a terrific breakfast taco filling.

    Hi! This is my first time visiting this blog. I found it by searching for non-egg breakfast recipes. As much as I try, I cannot make myself love eggs. This recipe is the answer to all of my prayers. It isn’t filling, delicious, and simple to make with great ingredients! Thank you so much for this!

    I LOVE this recipe!!! Have made it many times. I typically use breakfast sausage (as that’s what my CSA provides and it’s delicious!), and I increase the peppers and potatoes. One time it came out slightly bitter so I added a tiny amount of honey and voila! Rosemary Sauage Hash magic! The leftovers heat up great too. Thank you so much for this recipe!!! <3

    Sounds delicious. I can’t eat potatoes(nightshade) so will try with sweet potato. Do you think I can just substitute and follow recipe?

    I make breakfast hash all the time but never thought to add rosemary. I don’t usually cook with it but for some reason grew it this year and just threw it in my freezer. 🙂 Now I have a reason to use it and will give this version a try!
