Farmers Market Hash with Fresh Eggs

This recipe comes from Chef Todd Koebke from Sabin-Shellenberg Center as part of our Chef in the Market series at our PSU Market.

From Todd: This is one of my favorite ways to shop at the farmers market. Gather beautiful seasonal ingredients as you take in all the sights and smells of the morning. Use your favorite cast-iron skillet and bring all these amazingly fresh ingredients together simply with care to let each ingredient shine. Top with a farm fresh egg and start your day right.

  • 8 oz. bacon or sausage, diced
  • 1 ea sweet onion, diced
  • 1 ea red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 ea poblano pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 pint morel mushroom or any mushroom available, cleaned & sliced
  • 2 pound fingerling potato, quartered and sliced
  • 1 cup kale, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 oz. butter, cubed
  • ¼ cup chopped herbs, rosemary or Italian parsley are preferred
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

  • Heat cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add diced bacon or sausage and cook until fat is rendered out.
  • Add onions and sauté until slightly caramelized.
  • Add potato, peppers and cook until slightly caramelized and the potatoes have softened.
  • When potatoes are almost done, about 10 minutes, add kale and ¼ cup water. The water will help steam the kale and will also help the potatoes finish.
