RECIPE

Farmer’s Muffin Stuffin’ Hash and Eggs

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 large corn muffins, halved
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 3/4 pound andouille sausage, casings removed and meat cut into small cubes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery from the heart with leafy greens, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 2/3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 scallions, chopped

Preparation

Spread half the softened butter on the cut sides of the corn muffin halves. In a medium skillet, cook the muffins cut side down over medium heat until toasted, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add the EVOO, 1 turn of the pan, to the skillet. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp at the edges, 2-3 minutes. Add the onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Crumble in the muffins. Add the chicken broth and heat through, 1-2 minutes. Top the stuffing with the cheese, cover with foil and remove from the heat.

In a medium nonstick skillet, melt the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the hot sauce and season with salt and pepper. Add the eggs to the skillet and cook, scrambling, until set, about 5 minutes.

Serve a pile of stuffing topped with the scrambled eggs. Sprinkle the scallions on top.
