I wanted to pop in today and share an easy and delicious breakfast hubby and I have been enjoying for the past couple of weeks. To clarify the title, this 5 Minute Breakfast Hash takes just 5 minutes to put together during the week, but it does require you to do a little work on the weekend. And by a little work, I mean spend 5 minutes chopping a few things, toss them on a pan and stick them in the oven for 20 minutes. That’s it!
For several weeks, avocado toast with a sprinkle of sea salt and a fried egg was our go-to breakfast but for the past two weeks I’ve made this hash to change it up and we’ve been loving it.
This recipe is so easy it doesn’t even require any quantities. Simply chop up some potatoes (I usually use a mix of white and sweet but use whatever you like best) and put them on a pan with some chopped peppers, onions and chicken sausage. Toss everything with a little oil, salt and pepper and roast until the potatoes are soft. I cut mine pretty small so it only takes 15-20 minutes.

Stick the mixture in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. In the morning, I scoop some into a couple of bowls and stick them in the microwave to reheat for a minute or so. While that’s warming up, I scramble a few eggs, which takes 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs to the bowls and top everything with some salsa and diced avocado and boom! 5-minute breakfast.
Like I said, I didn’t use quantities because you can make as much or as little as you’d like for the week! Pro tip- want to make this even faster? Add some hard boiled eggs to your food prep and simply peel and chop a couple of those to add to the mix during week instead of using scrambled eggs.
You could also add extra veggies to the pan while roasting if you wanted to – mushrooms or broccoli would be good!
