Sausage Potato Hash

Sausage Potato Hash.

Hash. Not to be confused with hashtag which is a symbol created organically by Twitter as a search function. Hash, when referring to food, is a coarse mixture of potatoes, meat and spices. This is the kind of hash I’ll be talking about!

Sausage Potato Hash is an inexpensive meal to make. Even in today’s economy potatoes are still relatively cheap. I follow about a 3 to 1 ratio of potatoes to sausage in Sausage Potato Hash. 

  1. To keep the cost down
  2. to keep the fat down (a little)

If my boys were making this recipe, they’ have the ratio 3 to 1 in favor of sausage over potatoes!!

It’s a boy thing.

When you cut the potatoes, you’ll want to cube them all close to the same size. This is because the potatoes will cook more evenly at the same size. I also like to cut the sausage the same, I just think this dish is more appealing to the eye when everything is the same size.

The other thing you’ll want to do is soak the potatoes in water after you’ve cut them. Basically, soaking them in water removes a lot of the starch and makes them cook more crisply.

Sausage Potato Hash


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

*You can use red potatoes, but I'd prefer to peel red potatoes. I find the skin if tougher than Yukon gold potatoes.


  • 2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes*, washed and cubed
  • 1- 16 oz pkg Bryan Smokey Hollow Smoked Sausage (the one with 3 large links to a package)
  • salt and pepper
  • canola oil


  • Wash and cube potatoes. Soak in water 30 minutes to an hour. Remove from water and drain potatoes.
  • Add potatos to a large pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Drain potatoes well. You do not want much water on the potatoes when you add them to the hot skillet!
  • Add 3 T canola oil to a cast-iron skillet and heat on medium to medium low. Add just enough potatoes and sausage to make one layer in skillet, liberally salt and pepper the mixture. (You will have to cook in batches or use two pans.)
  • Cook on one side, undisturbed, until browned. This will take about 10 minutes. Turn with a spatula and cook until browned and cooked through. (Add more oil if necessary.) When potatoes are browned as much as you like, remove from pan and cook second batch.
  • Serve immediately.

  1. You just entertain me endlessly! :) The hashtag opening was hilarious! Seriously, though, this hash looks fantastic and the ratio? Totally agree, it’s a boy thing! My hubby would honestly devour that entire pan! Thanks for sharing and pinning! Have a great Monday! :)

  2. Isn’t it funny that one day that sign was referred to as the “pound” sign? Love this hash Paula! I might have to make this for dinner, we are big breakfast for dinner eaters!

    • We are too. We have breakfast for dinner at least once a week!

      It’s funny to think of it as the ‘pound’ sign now :)

  3. I love to make a hash too. Found to throw different things in it and I really like the idea of the sausage.

  4. Love that you make this in a cast iron skillet. We make potatoes and sausage all the time but usually just end up slicing it. I grew up with a very traditional Irish cooking mother and hash was on the breakfast menu quite often. I might have to razzle dazzle my husband with this version of hash really soon!

    • I can’t live without my cast iron skillets. This is one of my fall-back recipes when I don’t know what else to make. Thanks for visiting, I hope your hubs like it.

    Isn’t it funny that back in the day we called the hashtag a pound sign? We enjoy something similar to this and it’s always a hit in the cooler months! Thanks so much for linking up to Freedom Fridays last week! We hope you’ll join us again tonight when the party goes live! {hugs}

  6. This looks very yummy. I think I will be adding this to my meal plan this week.
