We woke up Sunday morning and I was starving. Usually I use the weekends as a chance to clear out my pantry/freezer/fridge and get creative. Saturday night we had gotten carry-out from Alabama-Q (which is delicious by the way) and had turkey ribs and pork rib tips leftover. I also didn’t want to do a lot of work (it was Sunday morning and I felt like relaxing), so here’s what I threw together Leftover BBQ Breakfast Hash:
Leftover BBQ Hash – Serves 2 (can easily double or triple recipe)
- 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil (or olive oil or canola oil)
- 1/2 cup frozen peppers and onions, thawed and drained
- 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
- 1 cup frozen potatoes o’brien (the kind that’s cubed with peppers and onions in it)
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup leftover bbq (pork, turkey, chicken, etc), chopped
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- 1 – 2 teaspoons Seasonings (use what you like) – I ended up using smoked paprika, cayenne, a bit of garlic powder, and cumin (mostly the smoked paprika and cayenne with a dash of the others)
- 2 eggs
- 2 – 3 tablespoons bbq sauce
**Note – I used so many frozen ingredients because I was trying to clean out my freezer. Besides it also cuts my prep time when I’m bleary eyed Feel free to sub in fresh ingredients.
- Heat oil in skillet over medium to medium high heat. Add peppers, onions, corn and cook for about a minute.
- Add potatoes to skillet and season with salt, pepper, and whatever else you’re using. Stir well so everything is coated evenly with seasoning then allow to cook for undisturbed for 4 – 5 minutes or until the hash is lightly browned.
- Stir in leftover bbq meat. Flip hash and allow to cook again for 3 – 4 minutes or until hash is just starting to brown. Make a small hole(to hold the egg) on each side of the skillet.
- Pour one egg into each well. Let the white cook for a bit, about a minute or two. Drizzle about half a teaspoon of water on each egg yolk, reduce heat to low and cover.
- Cook for 1 – 4 minutes (or even longer) depending on how done you like your egg. I personally go for medium.
- Split into two portions and plate. Drizzle warmed bbq sauce over each portion.
So the whole thing from start to finish took me maybe 15 – 20 minutes and wasn’t hard at all. It actually ended up being pretty tasty. I think my husband liked it more than I did, but after adding some hot sauce to my portion I definitely cleaned my plate.
What do you guys think? Have you ever used leftover bbq for breakfast? I’ve heard that there’s different regional versions, what do you do?
