This one skillet breakfast gets the goofy name “hobo potatoes” because of the limited ingredients and cooking tools needed make it!
I remember making this often when camping all throughout my childhood. We would usually wrap all of the ingredients in foil and place it directly into the fire to cook, and remove wheat he potatoes were soft and slightly crispy. Pair with a fire roasted hot dog and man, oh man, is that camping or what?!
This dish was inspired by my camping favorites, however I did not cook them fireside–unfortunately!
For this dish, you just need a cast iron skillet, or favorite frying pan, potatoes, sausage and veggies of choice! This is a great dish to make on a Sunday before you grocery shop for the week because you can toss in any and all vegetables close to going bad– you guys know I’m all about that no waste life!
I tossed everything into my cast iron skillet, added some jalapeño for spice, seasoned everything up and brunch is served! I didn’t even use oil here because the fat from the sausage acts as our cooking fat here–which makes for some seriously delicious layers of flavor!
Enjoy, and as always, eat your Hartt out!
