A Fun Family Breakfast

Spruce up the usual bacon and scrambled eggs with this easy chorizo hash for a special for Sunday brunch. This is a fun and delicious breakfast inspired by my friend Sandy Coughlin’s new book Big Boards for Families.

We love how both charcuterie and snack boards bring everyone together to enjoy a meal! Sandy shares great ways to get creative and to have a truly great experience while gathering.

In this book, you’ll find all kinds of ideas for creating fun boards from main meals and snacks to desserts. Boards are a great way to gather your friends and family and enjoy good food together.

Big Boards for Families is the perfect gift idea for almost anyone! Pair it with a pretty board or platter, a bottle of wine, or a handful of your favorite ingredients.

Sandy’s book has given us so much inspiration for bringing people together in fun new ways from appetizers to desserts and everything in between (like this chorizo breakfast hash)!!

In this recipe, the spicy or sweet flavors of sausage are mixed with bacon, eggs, and sweet and smooth Yukon gold potatoes. Create a board of toppings and gather everyone at the table.

Ingredients & Variations

THE MEAT I use a local homemade chorizo sausage. This pork sausage can be either spicy or sweet, choose the flavor that you prefer. Be sure to remove the casing when preparing the sausage for this recipe. Bacon adds a smoky crisp to this recipe.

THE POTATOES Yukon gold potatoes have yellowish flesh with a sweet and silky texture. They retain their moisture when pan-frying and are the best choice for this hash. To cut on prep time, you can make this recipe with either leftover roasted potatoes or baked potatoes or even a bag of frozen homestyle hash browns.

Chorizo Hash

Start the day off right with this easy Chorizo Breakfast Hash! Spicy sausage and smoky bacon are cooked with creamy potatoes, then topped with scrambled egg and cheese.
Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 6


  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes ½ inch pieces
  • 1 pound chorizo sausage casing removed
  • 4 strips bacon sliced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 6 eggs whisked
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot with 6 cups of water, bring to a boil and cook for 6-8 minutes or until they are fork tender. Drain them and set aside.
  • While potatoes are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon until crisp. Remove and set aside.
  • Remove the casing from the chorizo and add it to the bacon fat along with the onion. Cook until no pink remains, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside leaving the fat in the pan.
  • Turn the heat up to medium high and add the potatoes, seasonings, and garlic to the pan. Cook until browned without stirring too much so the potatoes can form a crust. Stir in the meat.
  • While potatoes are browning, lightly scramble the eggs in a small pan over medium heat. Eggs should be slightly undercooked and shiny. Place on top of the hash and sprinkle cheese on top.
  • Place in the oven and heat until cheese is melted and heat through, about 5 minutes.

  1. I’ve made this about 5 times so far. This last time I used spicy breakfast sausage instead of chorizo because the store didn’t have any. Always a hit!!5 stars

  2. This was delicious! I added a couple of roasted poblano peppers I had frozen (skins and seeds removed) into the mixture of chorizo and onion. It added some nice depth a little kick.

    This is keeper and will be great for a family brunch. Thank you.5 stars
