Is there anything as comforting as waking up to a hearty breakfast on a crisp morning? I’m talking potatoes with chorizo and fried eggs that will fuel you for a full day of adventure! This Chorizo O’Brien Hash is just what you need - a one-skillet meal, with a smooth avocado crema to dollop on top, it’s a breakfast of dreams!
This is one of those breakfasts that is SO simple. It uses frozen potatoes for quick prep and minimal freezer or storage space, limited prep, and only dirties one skillet. For me, that’s a total win. Everyone loves the crispy O'Brien potatoes and the addition of black beans, green chilies, and a smooth Avocado crema make it a fun and still easy meal for all.
Chorizo or Sausage
Ok, so truth, this recipe works with hot sausage, mild sausage, or chorizo. Use what you have on hand. If you are using bulk pork, add smoked paprika and a little heat from ground chili powder too, but just a touch. Whatever you have in the freezer that needs to be used works great. I do recommend ground chorizo for this recipe though, not the premade links that are pre-cooked. Those are delicious and can be sliced and served in this dish but aren’t the same as ground sausage. If you have family or friends that can't do spice, stick with mild sausage or bulk pork.
Perfecting the Fried Eggs
The fun part about this is the eggs dropped right in on top - which is easy if you are inside your RV or at the grill but can be a bit challenging if you’re cooking over a live fire outside. Don’t be afraid to fry the eggs in their own skillet so that they are done to everyone’s likeness if you are worried about the overall circulation of the heat. If you are frying eggs in their own skillet, it’s all about making sure the pan is hot enough for the whites to set perfectly. Make sure your skillet is preheated and either well seasoned or add a little butter or fat to swirl to coat to prevent the eggs from sticking.
