What is breakfast hash made of?
Breakfast hash is basically a combination of onion, garlic, shallot, potatoes, peppers, eggs and spices all cooked in one pan. For sauteing the vegetables and cooking, I used Wild Garden Premium Ghee to add depth to this dish. Ghee has a high smoke point which means less burning and smoke when you’re frying or sauteing. Ghee is nutritious and easily digestible. It can be used in place of butter for cooking dishes like potato hash.
This is a Mediterranean style breakfast hash, so I've used thyme and sumac for flavoring and decided to top the final dish with an epic homemade tahini sauce made with Wild Garden All Natural Tahini. I love this tahini because of its fresh taste and creamy texture.
How to make breakfast hash the Mediterranean way
Melt ghee in a large pan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and shallots until translucent. Add in chopped bell pepper and cook it for a few minutes. Then, add chopped potatoes and saute until fully cooked, stirring occasionally. Make three wells in the pan and break an egg into each well. Turn the heat down to low and cook for 5 minutes until they're cooked. Top skillet breakfast with feta, dill, tomatoes and tahini sauce.
The lemon tahini sauce is a delicious topping for this easy potato hash and eggs. All you need to do is to stir in some lemon juice into tahini with some salt and black pepper. Add in a few tablespoons of water to make the sauce thinner and then drizzle it over the potato hash. You can store the leftover tahini sauce in a glass jar and refrigerate for up to 7 days and use it on salads or even as a dip.
Can I make breakfast potato hash without eggs?
Absolutely. Eggs are simply an addition that you can leave out if you prefer and make a Mediterranean breakfast potato hash skillet without eggs.
