Cast Iron Egg Hash

Speaking of cast iron, here is  a recipe that I love to try out on company. I don’t include any cooking times as your grill will be different from mine based on the brand and charcoal you are using. I highly recommend Stubbs (not my cat) charcoal. I buy it in bulk from Lowe’s as the heat it produces is even and very long lasting. Although the next time I try it I think I’ll use an open fire. It’s easy and seriously impresses company. Just be patient! It usually takes me about an hour and a half, but guests love to watch the process. Feeds four to six people. I highly recommend Shadowchase or Cavalier farms sausage.

1/4-1/2 lb. of sausage
6 eggs
4 medium red potatoes, sliced in 1/4 inch slices
one large sweet onion (vidalia if they’re avaliable)
minced garlic to taste
one sliced granny smith apple
olive oil
salt and pepper

Heat grill, while heating slice potatoes, onion, garlic and apple
Place cast iron on the grill, allow it to heat up
cook the sausage, pulling into small bits as it cooks, 5-10 minutes based on the heat of the grill (I use two wooden spoons to separate the sausage)
remove the sausage with a slotted spoon, retaining the grease in the pan
place garlic in a small bowl, cover with the cooked sausage (this will let the garlic steam into the sausage)
cook potato slices in the cast iron skillet stirring occasionally and adding olive oil in drizzles to keep from burning until softened
add onion, apple, cook until softened
add sausage, garlic, salt and pepper
cook until garlic caramelizes and the onions and apple are soft
cover with six eggs, beaten with about two tbs. of cream
cook about one-two minutes
cover with shredded cheese of your liking (I like cheddar and asiago), about two cups
as soon as the eggs are soft but still slightly runny, you’re done

I serve with grilled peaches and toast.

Take a nap, then exercise for about a half hour 🙂
