Breakfast Hash – A Delicious Eggless Breakfast Option
Written by Michele Vieux
I came up with this recipe when I bought one of those giant pork loins (that are always on sale) at the grocery store for a dinner party and didn’t know what to do with the “ugly half” which is what I call the end that has the tasty, yet not as appetizing, darker meat. Not only is it a breakfast alternative to eggs, it also makes a tasty snack.
3-4 lb. pork loin roast
2 T. Liquid Smoke
1-2 t. minced garlic
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
6 Fuji (or other tart, crisp apple like Granny Smith), cut in large dice
1T. olive oil
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Crushed Almonds or Walnuts
Rub liquid smoke on outside of pork loin and roast in 375 degree oven for 35-45 minutes until pork loin is cooked medium to medium well. Remove from oven and let rest while you prepare the remainder of the hash.
Place olive oil, garlic, onion, celery, bell peppers, apples, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper in pan and sauté over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.
Cut pork loin into large dice and add to pan. Cook for another 2-3 minutes and serve with crushed nuts on top. Save the rest for the next day’s breakfast, lunch, or snack!
Makes 10-12 servings.
