I often feel inspired to create a dish simply out of my desire to use up everything I have on hand in my vegetable bin. I can’t bear for anything to go to waste. In those moments, potato hash is a shoe in. It’s an inexpensive dish to make with  the bonus of versatility so, you can adapt it based on what you have handy in your fridge. When zucchini is in season, it’s a wonderful challenge to find different ways to include it in whatever I’m making. So today, it became part of this skillet hash and it provided texture and flavor making it  so good. This one-skillet meal is also versatile.

How to Make the BEST Skillet Potato Hash Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Skillet Potato Hash with Zucchini and Sausages: Yukon gold potatoes, pork or turkey smoked sausage, fresh zucchini, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, onion, olive oil, seasoned salt and black pepper and green onions.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: One large 12 inch skillet, sharp knife and cutting board, vegetable peeler, large spoon and measuring spoons.
  • You can use turkey or pork sausage in this recipe. Kielbasa or andouille will work perfectly.
  • This recipe takes less than thirty minutes to prepare making it low stress, too. You could cut the zucchini, bell peppers and onion in advance and pop them into the refrigerator in plastic storage bags until you’re ready to assemble the dish for cooking.
  • You can use another variety of potatoes in this recipe. Please note, the cooking time may need to be adjusted depending on the type used.
  • It’s best to use a large skillet for hash so the potatoes will get that brown char and not simply steam. Once you add them to the pan, let them sit and avoid stirring too much or they may break apart.
  • When do you serve potato hash? I serve this hash for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. There’s no wrong time of day for a quick skillet meal.
  • Store Potato Hash chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave in single serving portions or in a non stick skillet over medium heat.
