Farmhouse Hash with Your Egg Choice

I sometimes wonder if I will ever get tired of the Food Network...while watching this week I caught a new show -- Sandra's Money Saving Meals w/ Sandra Lee. I always liked Semi-Homemade Cooking - so I sat down to watch -- what a terrific resource if you are trying to trim your grocery budget.

Not only did I take away several recipes...she gave lots of tips on how to save money in the grocery store and at home.

One tip that I already do: buy your veggies whole -- then clean and chop them yourselves...they are so much cheaper that way!

This is a recipe that was one of many that were featured on the show...and since it used ingredients that I already had on hand (everything except the Italian sausage) I thought that I would give it a try...You can find the full recipe here.

This was so simple and easy to prepare...it was a great way to have breakfast for dinner. I also loved that it was a one pot wonder...easier clean up!

In the original recipe she calls for a poached egg but since I don't like them (as in never tried them) I opted for a fried for the adults and scrambled for the kids.


1 tbl spoon canola oil (I used olive oil)
2 stalks celery diced
1 carrot diced
1/2 med yellow onion diced
2 large red potatoes diced ( I used 5-6 for my family)
1/2 lb sweet Italian sausage
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

Notice from my picture that I left out the garlic, red pepper and paprika? I didn't do that on purpose...I was going by memory while cooking...should have checked out the recipe first...but even without the spices it was really good.


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, sausage, paprika, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt/pepper to taste.

Saute stirring frequently, until the potatoes and carrots are tender, and the sausage is cooked through, about 12 minutes.

At this point Sandra and I took a different path -- so if you want to see the directions for poaching an egg -- click here.

I just fried a couple of eggs in butter and then scrambled 4 more with milk for the kids.

Divide the potato mixture between your bowls and top with eggs.

Greg and I both thought that this was sooo yummy!! We both give it a rating of 5 spoons...we both wanted more but it was all gone!!

The kids were a little bummed that they didn't get to have fried eggs...but I just didn't think that it was safe for them to eat.

Since I didn't get a chance to post the Mcklinky this past Sunday, I wanted to give everyone a chance to link up this week. Thanks so much for following along with us on this food adventure. We can't wait to see what's on your table!!
