Salsa, Hash Brown + Sausage Egg Skillet

This Salsa, Hash Brown + Sausage Egg Skillet could just be the perfect breakfast for a large crew on a lazy weekend morning! Below these soft baked eggs you will find: Golden hash browns, chopped onions, red peppers, mushrooms, black beans, sausage, and Sabra Roasted Garlic Salsa to add a bit of zing and color.

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I especially love breakfast for dinner but breakfast on Sunday morning is so ritualistic to me. I slowly sip on a cup of coffee and leisurely begin to cook; mostly from my imagination, sometimes from memory.

This has all of my breakfast favorites in it: Eggs, mushrooms and sausage. Now breakfast doesn’t quite seem complete without salsa. I know that when you see the word salsa you mostly think of a classic snack known as chips and salsa but there are so many other uses for the tomato-based snack. Breakfast was the obvious choice when I thought about how I would branch out with Sabra’s salsa.

You can mix this up as much as you want but I beg you, keep three of these ingredients if you do make any changes:

  1. Hash browns – These are the base and in my opinion, non-negotiable. Although, a healthier version would be to replace them with something greener, maybe spinach or kale. Just cook the leafy green enough to wilt it and then mix it with the other ingredients before cracking the eggs on top. I would also switch to olive oil in this case and use only 1 – 2 Tbsp, not 4!
  2. Eggs – What’s breakfast without the eggs cracked on top of a pile of potatoes, followed by some other vegetables of course.
  3. Salsa – It really makes this dish! You can feel free to mix up the flavor of salsa as you see fit. Sabra has many options to choose from. It was honestly a toss up between the Roasted Garlic and Southwestern Salsa. This day, the Roasted Garlic won.

If you are a vegetarian, removing the sausage is a snap. You don’t need to replace it with anything as the mushrooms do a really good job at acting like they are meat. If you really wanted to, you could add another vegetable. Maybe corn if you are using the southwestern salsa!

Let’s talk about the eggs now. To get them to cook evenly was a challenge, my one tip here would be to make sure that your mixture is completely flat (or as flat as you can make it) in the skillet before cracking the eggs on top. Also make sure that the sides have a sufficient amount of the mixture so the eggs don’t sink into the crevice. If they do sink to the sides, don’t worry. It will still taste really great and be edible!

You might also want to keep an eye on it after you crack the eggs and begin to bake them. When its “done’ completely depends on your preferences. I suggest cooking times in the recipe but it truly depends on if you like runny eggs or if you like a firmer egg. Sorry, but you have to pay attention with this step! It’s tempting to walk away for 10-15 minutes but I urge you to turn your oven light on and check it every 3-5 minutes and then decide when you’re happy with your yolks.


Salsa, Hash Brown + Sausage Egg Skillet

For this recipe I used Sabra Garlic Salsa but you can use any variety you see fit. I imagine it would be great with the Southwestern Salsa with black beans and corn! I've found that the time in which you bake your eggs will vary from person to person. If you like your eggs runny, bake for a smaller amount of time. If you hate runny eggs, bake for longer. Just keep an eye on the skillet!

Yield: 5-7

Prep Time: 25 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Total Time: 45 min


2-3 medium potatoes
1/2 medium onion  (about 2/3 cup)
1 red pepper (about 1/2 cup)
4 medium to large baby portobello mushrooms (about 1 cup)
6 breakfast sausage links
4 Tbsp vegetable oil, divided
1 cup black beans
1 container Sabra Roasted Garlic Salsa, divided
7 eggs
Salt + pepper
Feta cheese (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Peel and cook potatoes in boiling water. Once cooked and cooled, shred and pat with paper towel to rid potato of excess water.

Chop the onion and red pepper and set aside. Slice the mushrooms and sausage links and set aside.

In a 12 inch cast iron skillet, coat with 2 Tbsp of the vegetable oil and spread the shredded potatoes and chopped onion evenly on the skillet. Turn your burner onto medium heat and pat down with a metal spatula. Cook for 5-6 minutes on one side or until potatoes turn brown and crispy. Drizzle the remaining remaining vegetable oil on top and use the spatula to flip the potatoes, doing so in portions until all sections are flipped. Continue to cook for another 5-6 minutes or until both sides of the potatoes are brown and crispy. You may need to re-flip to evenly distribute uncooked potatoes.

Add the red pepper, sliced mushrooms, sausage, black beans and half of the sabra container to the mixture. Combine thoroughly and flatten the mixture in the skillet.

Crack all seven eggs on top of the mixture in a circle with one egg in the middle. Season well with salt and pepper. Place the cast iron skillet into the preheated oven and bake for 12-20 minutes. Or until you are happy with your egg consistency.

Add the remaining salsa to the top inbetween the cooked eggs. Sprinkle the cheese on top (if using) and serve!

    Oh this kinda reminds me of shashuka with the eggs and salsa (which is similar to the traditional tomato sauce). My favorite Sabra salsa is mango and peach with the roasted garlic as a close second.

    Breakfast is my husband’s favorite meal of the day but I rarely have time to make it. I’ll have to make this for him – he’ll love it!

    I LOVE breakfast but any time I eat a proper full breakfast, I get really sleepy and go back to bed. So I just have a smoothie. This looks great, though! I think I may make it for my husband, who doesn’t seem to have the same defect. 😉
