Sausage, Pepper and Mushroom Hash Recipe


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage (sweet, spicy, or Italian work well)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (white button or cremini), sliced
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Optional: fresh herbs like chopped parsley or thyme for garnish


  • Large skillet or cast-iron pan
  • Large pot


Parboil the potatoes:

  • Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes, until slightly softened but still firm. Drain well and set aside.

Brown the sausage:

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through. Remove the sausage with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Cook the vegetables:

  • Add the onion, bell peppers, and mushrooms to the same skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally for 6-8 minutes until softened and slightly browned.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

Combine and cook:

  • Return the sausage and parboiled potatoes to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked, golden brown, and crispy.


  • Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Optionally garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite breakfast additions, like fried eggs or toast.


  • Choice of sausage: Use your preferred variety of breakfast sausage to match your taste. Spicy sausage adds a kick, while sweet or Italian have distinct flavor profiles.
  • Potato variety: Yukon Golds work well, but Russets are also suitable for hash.
  • Make it ahead: You can parboil the potatoes and cook the sausage and veggies the night before. Store separately in the fridge and assemble in the morning.
  • Get creative: Add other vegetables like zucchini, spinach, or even leftover cooked broccoli. Spice things up by adding hot sauce or a pinch of chili flakes.

Enjoy your hearty and satisfying sausage, pepper, and mushroom hash!
