A cheap and easy potato & sausage breakfast hash recipe that will save you money and help to use up leftovers! A cheap meal idea to feed your family and be more frugal; the breakfast hash is a winning recipe!
If you’ve never heard of it, then you need to know all about the delicious meal known as the Hash. A ‘hash’ is a great little dish of chopped up meats, potatoes and onions that are fried up all together in a pan. The name ‘Hash’ actually comes from the French word hacher, which means to chop up. It was long considered a poor mans dish, as it was basically just a way to use up leftovers.

And that is exactly why you will love this recipe! It’s so cheap and easy to make that feeding the family a good, healthy breakfast (or dinner!) meal is a piece of cake! And you can use up any of those old, forgotten vegetables taking up room in the crisper and avoid the dreaded food waste!
Seriously almost anything can be added to a Hash, but for the recipe that I’m sharing with you today, I’ve kept it quite simple with cheap ingredients; potatoes and sausages being the hero’s. But if you want to elevate this recipe even further, then you can add in any extra veggies, meats or even eggs!
And yes, I know that usually hash recipes don’t call for adding stock but I just love the extra flavour it gives when everything simmers together. And after the liquid has all reduced, the potatoes (or whatever veggies you’re using) still all crisp up on the outside whilst staying fluffy in the middle! Yum!
Making a Hash couldn’t be more simple. Just chop all of your meat and veggies into the same size pieces and fry them up in a pan with some seasoning and oil until everything is tender and cooked! Delicious!
