Braunschweiger Potato Hash

Recipe by  

"I was making breakfast one morning and decided I wanted some kind of meat to go with my eggs and fried potatoes. All we had on hand was some braunschweiger, so I tossed some in the pan with the potatoes and this dish was born."

Das schmect gut! I sauteed fresh onions and garlic with the spuds. Perfect with soft sunny side up eggs. Thanks for the recipe! This is a keeper.

What a perfect idea for a hash! Thank you!!! To speed things up, I nuked the potatoes a few minutes first, then diced them. I added a half of an onion to the potatoes while frying them. It all got perfectly crunchy and mashy! Add some hot sauce at the table... Yum!!!

Wow, I would never have thought to make my braunschweiger into a hash. I bought some the other day but really didn't just want to put it on bread. So, googled and came across this. It is wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love hash so will be making this often I am sure.

This was very good - made it for a late breakfast. Added the egg on top which someone suggested. Used real onion instead of powder and would use maybe 6 oz. of braunschweiger instead of 8 oz. Easy to make and will go in my files.

Darn tasty! I love fried potatoes and braunschweiger. The combination is very good. The only things I did differently was to fry the potatoes (and some chopped onions I had in the fridge) in butter with a little olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I also mashed the braunschweiger before adding it to the potatoes and then mashed them a little together. Great with a couple of fried eggs.

This is really good. I was trying to think of something for braunschweiger besides sandwiches and this is perfect!

This is awesome! I love hash, and I love Braunshchweiger. What a great combo! I like mine with a lot of freshly cracked black pepper. Thanks for the idea, this is going into my monthly rotation.
