Its been a while since we made something hearty for brunch. This is the Husband’s creation. It is a hybrid of Shashuka and Hash brown. Basically breakfast in a pan! Its a one pan dish that is easy to prepare. The salty and flavourful bratwurst with crispy potatoes and a poach runny egg yolk is heavenly. I’ve made gifs of the making process. Hope you like it!
The bratwurst in the Hashshouka is the Husband’s German twist. If you don’t have bratwurst, I think Italian sausage will also be perfect for this! I call this a hybrid of Shashuka because of the poached eggs. Nothing beats runny egg yolk for breakfast. It takes slightly longer to prepare, with the potato peeling and the frying but this is so hearty that you will be full till dinner, or at least till tea time. So it is definitely worth that extra couple of minutes to make this. Having a hangover? This may help too!
Hope you like the gif! Let me know if you guys like this sort of presentation. As you can see, all you need to do is place all your ingredients in one pan, let the potatoes brown, then add the sausage and onions. Lid on. Let it cook for another minute or two till the potatoes are almost done.
Look how nice and comforting it is. Don’t you want to start digging in?
It may look like a lot of food but the Husband and I finished everything up! There was still a small portion left after brunch which we snacked on throughout the day. Well more like the Husband had almost everything that is left.
Serves 2-3 people
3 bratwurst (about 300g in total)
2 tbs butter
4 large potatoes, tiny cubes
2 medium onions, chopped
In a medium large pan on medium high heat, brown the bratwurst. Remove and set aside. Slice bratwurst to about 1/4 inch thick.
To the same pan add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan and 1 tbs butter heat on medium high heat. When oil is sizzling hot, place potatoes into the pan. Cover the whole bottom of the pan evenly. Let it cook for about 2-3mins till bottom is brown. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
Gently fry the potatoes so that the top side of the pan is now at the bottom. Let it cook for about 2-3mins. Then add chopped onions. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Gently mix the potatoes with the onions. Then add the sliced bratwurst. Stir fry to mix well. Place lid on the pan and let it cook for another 2 mins. Till potatoes are almost cooked.
Using a spatula, make 3 holes for the eggs. Then crack egg into the holes. Place lid on and it let the egg steam cook for about 5mins or until the eggs whites are no longer translucent.
Before serving season with more salt and pepper and a dash of paprika.
