This Eggplant Pepper Mushroom Turkey Sausage Hash is great served as a bed for a poached egg or in an egg omelet. It makes for a hearty breakfast or brunch.
My kids love to sleep in, so most weekends, I end up digging through my refrigerator and freezer to see what I can conjure up for a hearty breakfast or brunch.
This past weekend, I dug up a Trader Joe’s turkey kielbasa sausage link from my freezer that had been left from one of my husband’s softball barbecues earlier in the summer. As I looked through my refrigerator, I found a lone eggplant, a red bell pepper, some onions from my CSA Box, and a pack of cremini mushrooms.
Hash is a great way to use all up the bits and pieces of vegetables and leftover meats. Although I didn’t have any potatoes which might be found in a typical hash, the eggplant provided some nice bulk to this hash. So, I guess this might qualify as a low carb breakfast hash.
I enjoyed my hash with a poached egg on top. For the boys, I made a giant omelet with this Eggplant Pepper Mushroom Turkey Sausage Hash tucked inside along with some cheddar cheese. Served with fresh strawberries and orange juice, brunch was served.
