Leftover BBQ Breakfast Hash

3 Jul

We woke up Sunday morning and I was starving.  Usually I use the weekends as a chance to clear out my pantry/freezer/fridge and get creative.  Saturday night we had gotten carry-out from Alabama-Q (which is delicious by the way) and had turkey ribs and pork rib tips leftover.  I also didn’t want to do a lot of work (it was Sunday morning and I felt like relaxing), so here’s what I threw together.

Leftover BBQ Hash – Serves 2 (can easily double or triple recipe)

  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil (or olive oil or canola oil)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peppers and onions, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen potatoes o’brien (the kind that’s cubed with peppers and onions in it)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup leftover bbq (pork, turkey, chicken, etc), chopped
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons Seasonings (use what you like) – I ended up using smoked paprika, cayenne, a bit of garlic powder, and cumin (mostly the smoked paprika and cayenne with a dash of the others)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons bbq sauce

**Note – I used so many frozen ingredients because I was trying to clean out my freezer.  Besides it also cuts my prep time when I’m bleary eyed  Feel free to sub in fresh ingredients.


  • Heat oil in skillet over medium to medium high heat.  Add peppers, onions, corn and cook for about a minute.
  • Add potatoes to skillet and season with salt, pepper, and whatever else you’re using.  Stir well so everything is coated evenly with seasoning then allow to cook for undisturbed for 4 – 5 minutes or until the hash is lightly browned.
  • Stir in leftover bbq meat.  Flip hash and allow to cook again for 3 – 4 minutes or until hash is just starting to brown.  Make a small hole(to hold the egg) on each side of the skillet.
  • Pour one egg into each well.  Let the white cook for a bit, about a minute or two.  Drizzle about half a teaspoon of water on each egg yolk, reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Cook for 1 – 4 minutes (or even longer) depending on how done you like your egg.  I personally go for medium.
  • Split into two portions and plate.   Drizzle warmed bbq sauce over each portion.

So the whole thing from start to finish took me maybe 15 – 20 minutes and wasn’t hard at all.  It actually ended up being pretty tasty.  I think my husband liked it more than I did, but after adding some hot sauce to my portion I definitely cleaned my plate.
