What You'll Need

1 package of Pork Mesquite Lime Sausage 

1 large sweet potato, chopped

1 large red bell pepper, chopped

1 medium sized yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 

1/4 cup canned or frozen corn 

4 organic pasture raised eggs

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Salt and pepper 

Lime wedges for serving

The Recipe

  1. The mesquite lime sausage comes in casings so you’ll want to remove the sausage from them before you start. Use a knife to cut the casing open then remove the sausage (see photo above) and place in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

  2. Heat a large pan on medium heat. Add sausage and break apart with a spatula. Cook for about 8-10 minutes stirring frequently, until sausage is cooked through and brown and crispy on the outside. Keep some of the oil in the pan.

  3. Use the same pan to cook the sweet potatoes and onion. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 12-15 minutes, until sweet potatoes are softened. Add the bell peppers and garlic and cook for another 4 minutes until the peppers are softened.

  4. Once the vegetables are cooked, add the chorizo back to the pan and combine with the veggies. Cook for about 1 minute before adding the corn. Cook for another minute.

  5. While the hash is cooking, prepare 1 egg per person. I made mine sunny side up, but you could do a fried egg. Place about 1/4 of the hash on a plate and top with an egg, cilantro and a lime wedge. Enjoy!
