"I came up with this meal while poor and hungry, and it turned out so good that it's now a frequently requested meal at my house. The eggs are optional, but I really think that they kick the dish up a notch, so to speak!"

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the potatoes and kielbasa, and cook until the kielbasa is browned, and the potatoes are nearly tender, about 10 minutes. Add the frozen pepper mix and corn; season with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is hot and the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, crack in the eggs, and cook to your desired degree of doneness, about 1 1/2 minutes per side for over-medium. Portion the kielbasa hash into 6 servings, and top each serving with a fried egg.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

It wasn't a bad recipe, but it seemed so mushy. I cooked it the proper amount of time and everything, but with all the food that's in the pan (and I used my largest pan) it came out quite soft, ...

Wow! My husband and daughter loved this meal. The potatoes and sausage were too much for a large pan. Had to cook this in a pot, so the cook time to get potatoes to "nearly tender" was much m...

This was pretty good, something different. My 2 year old ate everything on his plate, so it is for sure worth 5 stars! I used my veggie chopper to chop everything, even the sausage. I used fresh...

This was really very good. I wasn't sure at first. I made a double batch since we have a very large family. I needed to cook it in batches though because otherwise it stayed to moist. You really...

My family liked this recipe very much. I have made it twice. The second time I used fresh bell pepper and onion rather than frozen and the result was much superior. I won't use the frozen pepper...

Wow! Quick, easy, cheap, and delicious. I used Turkey Smoked Sausage and a bag of frozen "Western" vegetables (red pepper, green pepper, corn & onions) to make it one step even easier. I cook...

I made this today...eating it right now as a matter of fact, and it is fabulous! Easy, inexpensive and tasty! I have made variations of hashes in the past but I think this one is the best. I ...

We've made this a few times, different variations (kielbasa vs. bratwurst, with/without eggs, etc.) and it's always good. True story: when I recently had a week off from work, my husband reques...

I could seriously eat this everyday and not need anything else. Well, except for ketchup, but that's not the recipes fault! Good job!!
