Have you ever had a potato hash? We love making it when we are looking for a cozy weekend breakfast. We load ours with fresh kale, black beans, bell peppers, onions, and even vegan sausage. Aside from the essential inclusion of potatoes, this breakfast hash is yours to customize. Whatever vegetables you have in your fridge, feel free to throw them into your hash!

Ingredients for breakfast potato hash in a cast iron skillet

While there are many different versions of potato hash, we did our best to keep this recipe simple. We are talking, crispy potatoes, sizzling vegan breakfast sausage, kale, and bell peppers. Although simple, we promise that this recipe is jam packed with flavor!

When it comes to breakfast sausages, we’ve been loving Beyond Meat’s new breakfast sausages. They’re not only incredibly delicious and reminiscent of what we remember animal sausage tasting like, but they’re also nutritionally superior, making them the perfect alternative. Disclaimer: this post isn’t sponsored by Beyond Meat, we are just big fans!

We recommend using a cast-iron skillet to make this hash. If you don’t have one, a non-stick pan works great too! We seasoned ours with old bay, salt, and pepper. Talk about simple, and delicious!
