Winter Vegetable Hash

Why I love my husband: he cooks (and very well, too!), he likes to create recipes, he lets me steal them and post them here, his food is always yummy, and did I mention he cooks? (Don’t be to jealous…he definitely does NOT do the dishes.)

This is one of his best recipes to date. And we’ve already made it a handful of times, with different variations. This is the base, but it’s so easy to swap out ingredients based on what you have on hand (one of my favorite types of recipes).

We used Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, potatoes, chicken-and-apple sausage and Canadian bacon — delicious! But could easily swap for another type of squash or use sweet potatoes instead. Or turkey bacon (or real bacon!); really any type or meat and veggies you want. Yum!

Winter Vegetable Hash

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
1/2 butternut squash, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound red new potatoes, chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 chicken-and-apple sausages, sliced into 1-inch pieces
4 slices Canadian bacon, chopped

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add Brussels sprouts, squash, and potatoes, and cook until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Test squash with fork until is slides easily through. Add sausage and bacon until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
