Breakfast Potato Hash

This is my husband’s recipe and let me tell you, yumm! This doesn’t have to be for breakfast, but I enjoy it most in the morning. This recipe is for two!

1 pkg. smoked sausage, chopped

6 Idaho potatoes, chopped

1 tsp. fresh oregano

1 tsp. fresh thyme

1 garlic clove

olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

Heat olive oil into a skillet, about enough to just cover the bottom of the pan. Add potatoes and cook for a few minutes before adding the sausage, oregano, thyme, garlic, and salt & pepper. I advise adding the garlic last because it cooks very fast! (Sorry this recipe wasn’t more specific, it’s my husband’s and he tends to just throw the kitchen sink into the pan and heat it.) You can add any spices you think will enhance the flavor, this is really a “catch-all” dish!

Happy eating!

Meatloaf Muffins

Now I know most people flinch at the mention of “meatloaf” but I promise my meatloaf is not a classic meat loaf.

You’re just going to have to trust me.

Meatloaf Muffins:

1 lb. ground beef

1 1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1 egg

1/2 c. crushed crackers (like in my meatball recipe)

2 garlic cloves

1/4 tsp. onion powder

Topping:

1/3 c. ketchup

2 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tbsp. yellow mustard

Preheat your oven to 375. Mix the beef, salt, black pepper, egg, cracker crumbs, garlic, and onion powder in a large bowl (I use my hands just like in the meatball recipe). Grease a muffin tin and shape the mixture into large meatballs. Place the balls into the muffin spaces and press down lightly to flatten into spaces. Mix together the ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard in a bowl (be sure to get out all the lumps from the brown sugar). Spread a little bit of the sauce over the top of each of the muffins.

(Please excuse my muffin tin, it’s had a lot of use.) Bake for 20 minutes and ta-da!!

Enjoy 🙂
