Justin & Ky's Famous Breakfast Hash

Your family is in town and staying with you for Christmas. Your buddy gets wasted and crashes on your couch. A young lady comes home with you and decides to stay the night. All of these scenarios deserve to be punctuated by a hearty breakfast. There is little that’s heartier or tastier (at least to us) than Justin & Ky’s Famous Breakfast Hash!

Today I’m going to go through a step-by-step tutorial on how to make this. It isn’t all that difficult and it doesn’t take that long but the results are totally worth it! Before we get into it, here’s what you’ll need to serve two people:

  • 1 medium-sized Yukon Gold potato

  • 1/2 pound ground beef

  • 1 jalapeno (optional)

  • 1/2 medium onion

  • 2 eggs

  • bread

  • Yum-Yum sauce (we’ll post a recipe for this soon!)

Now, let’s get into how to make this culinary delight!

First, cube your potato.

Next, chop the jalapeno.

Chop your onion. We find it doesn’t really matter if you use a white or red onion; we tend to use whatever is in the fridge (we use a LOT of onion).

Heat your pan over medium heat. Throw some oil in there and get it hot. Add the potato and onion. Cooking the potato is by far the most time-consuming step. This might take 15 minutes or so and you want to keep them moving to prevent them from sticking to the pan. If they do stick, scrape the browned bits of potato off the pan and stir them in; they are delicious!

Once the potatoes are almost cooked, add the hamburger. Break it up with a utensil.

Once the potatoes, onion, pepper, and meat are cooked, add two eggs. Stir them in. You’re almost there…

While the hash is cooking, toast some bread. The cool thing about this is that you can use almost any bread - even if it’s a little stale. This is a great way to get rid of old bread that you’d otherwise pitch. Here, we used some old hamburger buns.

We also gave these buns a nice dressing of Yum-Yum sauce. We don’t think this is optional.

When the hash is done, pile it onto the bread. I guarantee this will satisfy ravenous relatives, soothe hungover buddies, and impress your date.
