I’ve got an amazing, quick and super delicious skillet dinner for you tonight! This really a “brinner” as it’s more of a breakfast meal than a dinner meal…so we’ll call it a brinner.
Brinner is generally quick and this one is colorful, flavorful, packed with protein and veggies. You can serve it as is, or with some ripe, fresh fruit.
The cooking method for this meal is simple too. Cook the chorizo sausage with the peppers and onions, then saute the fresh spinach leaves in until they ‘melt.’ Slide the meat and veggie mixture into a bowl, then cook the potatoes for a few minutes, stirring often, until they begin to brown. Add the meat and veggies back in, then make wells for the eggs, cover and let the eggs cook to your liking. (If you want the eggs completely cooked through, you can use an ovenproof skillet and then bake the eggs for a few minutes, until cooked through.)
That’s it…dinner on the table in less than 31 Minutes?

Cooking Time – 15 minutes
- 8 oz. chorizo sausage
- 1 small onion, chopped

- In a large skillet, brown the chorizo sausage with the onion and bell pepper.

- Add the olive oil and hash brown potatoes to the same skillet and cook for 8 minutes, or until begin to brown.
- Stir the sausage mixture back in with the potatoes, and then make 4 small wells for the eggs. Crack 1 egg into each well and cover the skillet. Let cook for 3-4 minutes, or until eggs and cooked through to your liking. Add salt and pepper to taste.

- Serve Chorizo Potato Hash with fresh fruit.
Note: You could absolutely use just 1 – 20 oz. bag and there will be plenty for 4 servings. If you have a large enough skillet, you could use 2 – 20 oz. bags. I ended up using about 1 ½ bags.
