Skillet Potato Hash with Zucchini And Smoked Sausages – This skillet hash is a fantastic way to clean out your vegetable bin. It’s tasty and filling and you likely have the ingredients on hand. That’s considered a triple threat in my cookbook. I often feel inspired to create a dish simply out of my desire to use up everything I have on hand so nothings goes to waste. Skillet potato hash is an inexpensive dish to make and it’s completely versatile 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 was added to this skillet hash. It is so good. In fact, it’s so tasty if you’re watching your carbs you can skip the potatoes and make this skillet using all zucchini.
It takes less than 30 minutes to prepare making it low stress, too. It’s very similar to the skillet meals my Gramma used to make using ingredients she had available in her garden. I serve this meal for breakfast, brunch or breakfast for dinner and in my opinion there’s no wrong time of day the choice is yours.
