Hash brown/Sausage/Egg Breakfast

Andy Anderson !


I was in London, on business, a month or so ago, and we were having a breakfast business meeting at a really posh restaurant. I saw this really cool breakfast dish with awesome presentation go by me…

But because it was a business meeting I didn’t have a chance to check it out; however, based on what I saw, this is what I came up with.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Hash brown/Sausage/Egg Breakfast


  • 1Gather and prep your ingredients
  • 2Chop the onion, and place the yolk and whites into separate bowls.
  • 3Peel the potato, and grate on the large holes of a box grater.
  • 4Remove as much of the moisture from the potatoes as possible.
  • 5Chef’s Tip: I accomplish this by placing them into a tea towel, and twisting and squeezing the towel until I’ve removed most of the water.
  • 6Combine the egg white, the potato, and chopped onion in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.
  • 7Using a 3.5-inch salad ring place 2 ounces of the hash browns into the ring and press down.
  • 8Place the breakfast sausage on top of hash browns, and press down.
  • 9Place two more ounces of the hash browns on top of the sausage, and firmly press together.
  • 10Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  • 11Carefully place the hash browns (ring and all) into the skillet.
  • 12Allow to cook for about 5 minutes, or until the bottom is crispy.
  • 13Carefully flip the hash brown ring and cook another 5 minutes.
  • 14Chef’s Tip: The trick here is to get the temperature of the pan hot enough to crisp the potatoes and cook the sausage without burning the potatoes. Medium heat on most stoves is about right.
  • 15Chef’s Note: Do you have to use a cooking ring… Nah, you can just press everything together with a spatula. But it looks SO good when you use a ring. As a matter of fact, the ones that I use are called: Crumpet rings.
  • 16When the hash browns and sausage are almost finished, take a small saucepan and boil about a cup of water.
  • 17After it boils, take off the heat, and add the egg yolk, being very careful not to break it.
  • 18Leave it in the hot water for about 3 minutes.
  • 19Chef’s Note: You want it cooked, but still nice and runny.
  • 20Plate the hash browns and sausage patty on a nice plain plate, and place the egg yolk on top... don't break the yolk.
  • 21Add some chopped fresh rosemary, and a bit of black pepper for garnish. Serve immediately.
  • 22To eat, break the yolk over the hash browns, and let it seep into the hash browns. Enjoy.
  • 23Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
