turkey kielbasa hash

December 27, 2011

I’m definitely of the savory, less of the sweet. I don’t sweeten my lattes. I can, however, appreciate a molasses dipped piece of raw sugar in a double espresso. Every time I hold that little rock in my hand I think, “I bet this is what crack looks like”.

I know I can sound like a snotty little shit. I sometimes say things and as the words are leaving my lips I can actually materialize enough depersonalization anxiety to know how arrogant I must seem.

Whatever, anyway.


This is a perfect Sunday savory brunch… turkey kielbasa hash which I paired with eggs in a basket. First, I used a turkey kielbasa from Trader Joe’s (no nitrates, no preservatives, no artificial bullshit). I also used TJ’s potato medley. This is so simple:

  • 1 medium/large yellow onion – diced
  • 1 T salted butter / 1-2T olive oil
  • 1 full turkey kielbasa diced (1/8″ cubes)
  • 3 cups diced potatoes (1/8″ cubes)
  • cracked pepper/salt to taste

Caramelize the onion (butter/olive oil very low heat for 25-30 minutes). Boil the diced potatoes for 6-7 minutes. Do not over boil! You want the potatoes to still be firm. Add the potatoes and kielbasa to the onions and increase heat to medium. Once the kielbasa starts browning the dish is ready. Salt and pepper to taste. 

Also, my directions suck because I rarely measure anything.

    This is definitely something I would attempt to make because it has less than 5 ingredients. Sounds eze.
