Andouille Sausage Hash

Serves 4


  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes

  • 2 purple potatoes, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 Smart Chicken andouille sausages, diced

  • 1 shallot, diced

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Green onions, for garnish


Fill a medium pot ¾ of the way with water and add potatoes. Season with salt and bring to a boil. Cook potatoes until tender, then strain and set aside. In a medium pan, brown sausage. Add shallot and cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked potatoes and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

To poach the eggs, bring a saucepan filled with water to a boil. Turn down the heat and let the water come to a brisk simmer. One by one, crack the eggs into a small cup and gently pour the eggs in the water. Add the vinegar to the water. Cook eggs for about 5 minutes, until the whites are somewhat firm. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon. Gently pat eggs dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve each serving of hash with a poached egg over top.
