Fresh from your own backyard garden or local farmers market, this breakfast skillet dish is sure to be delightful and filling.
This breakfast skillet was created using vegetables from my backyard garden last summer. The eggs were provided by my chickens. The sausage came from Polyface Farm, a small family run farm here in Virginia. With a little bit of prep this come together very easy to make a hardy breakfast. I absolutely love that everything but the meat came from my backyard. As for the meat, we are supporting a local farmer and his sustainable regenerative farm. If you don’t have a backyard garden, I’d encourage you to check out your local farmer’s market. They have wonderful selections of produce and meats all from local area farms. You will be helping to support a small business and getting food that is locally sourced.

It is served and topped with fried eggs. This dish can be made Whole 30/Paleo if you are using compliant pork sausage.
What can hash be served with?
Breakfast hash can be served by itself since it is so filling. This truly is a meat and potatoes meal. Often times, I top my eggs with hot sauce. You can find my favorite hot sauce here. A side of mixed fruit or bread are some other options to add to the meal.Print
