Oh boy ! This recipe is ah-mazing, seriously one of the best things I have made. It started out as a lot of my recipes start - a glance at the "best buy date" of the contents of my fridge. My zucchinis were on their last leg and I was not willing to throw them out. I was planning on making a traditional hash with potatoes, but then I thought, why not try it with zuchinni instead - if it turns out great - I get a healthy meal, a new recipe and good use for the zucchini. Let me just say #bestdecision.

Quick thing about this recipe - it fits the adage , it gets better with age and it really is more that just a breakfast item. I served this with scrambled eggs and biscuits, but it is also great tossed into pasta or a sandwich filling and as soon as I done typing this up, I am going to try a grilled cheese version.

What you need:

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 red onion
  • smoked sausage
  • 1 table spoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • grated parmeasean cheese, for garnish

How to:

Grate zucchini, onion and sausage. You want about 1 1/4 cup grated zucchini and 1/2 cup grated onion and sausage.

Heat up your pan, add the zucchini, onion and minced garlic. Let the heat cook it until it is welted (about 5 minutes). Then add the oil, sausage, pepper and tiny pinch of salt. Let it cook for another 3 to 5 minutes, stiring constantly.

Scrambled eggs:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon cream 
  • knob of butter

Beat the eggs and cream with salt and pepper. Heat up the butter, pour in egg mixture and keep stiring until egg is cooked

Serve hash with scrambled eggs and toast or biscuits.

Serves 2 / 30 minutes
