One of my most favorite things my mom makes is a breakfast hash-type thing. I don’t really know that it has a name, but I think she called it a German potato thing before. I don’t know if it was, but she used to only make it on holidays and now does it for special occasions, and I am hoping that my being home for the holiday that she will make this for us. There is just something about fried potatoes that says home … haha. Here is my mom’s Easy Holiday Breakfast Hash made vegan.
When my mom would make this when we lived back in Oregon she would make it with Oktoberfest Sausage and we would all eat it, but my picky-eater brother would eat around the onions and peppers, so all my memories of this dish are meaty with tons of leftover veggies. Well now when my mom makes it, she doesn’t make it with Oktoberfest Sausage anymore (they don’t make/sell it in Texas) which works for me for obvious reasons, but works for my SIL too since most sausage isn’t gluten-free (seems a little weird). But I have to say when I eat it I do miss the meaty texture of that sausage and spices that were in it, so I decided to make my moms breakfast hash with some Tofurky Kielbasa sausage. And I don’t know about you but everytime I pop open that sausage I barely get the chance to get it in the dish cause I just start snacking on it, it’s so good!
Start by washing and scrubbing your potatoes and patting them dry. Poke holes with a fork or a sharp knife in each all over. Pop the potatoes in the microwave and let them become soft – be sure to turn them. I let mine go for about 3 minutes each time until soft. While the potatoes are microwaving cut the onions and peppers into small pieces and mince the garlic. In a saute pan add a little oil along with the garlic, veggies, and black pepper. Saute until browned then pour into a bowl. Chop potatoes into smallish like-size chunks. Add more oil to the saute pan and add the potatoes and more black pepper. Let saute on medium heat until all browned; you may need to add more oil halfway through the browning. While the potatoes are browning, chop the sausages in half lengthwise then into small pieces. Pour the potatoes into the bowl with the veg then add the sausage to the pan and brown. Add everything back to the pan and mix and warm through. Enjoy!
