I know we are in the middle of pumpkin season and all that jazz, but I’m taking a little break from squash to highlight one of my favorite fall veggies. Brussels sprouts!!
Brussels sprouts seemed to have replaced kale as the trendy vegetable of the late 2010s. They’re popping up everywhere, and I, for one, am here for it.
If you’re new to cooking with Brussels sprouts, welcome! They taste delicious raw, roasted, and sautéed. One of my favorite ways to prepare Brussels is to pair them with both sweet and savory flavors to offset their subtle bitterness.
In this Brussels sprouts and eggs hash, I included pears for something sweet and shallots and rosemary for something savory. I cooked down all of the ingredients in a cast iron skillet, made a couple wells for some eggs, and finished it off under the broiler until the eggs were cooked to my liking.
The final result is really delicious, if I do say so myself! You can enjoy this hash for weekend brunch or even have it for dinner one night. With only 30 minutes of prep and cook time, it’s got a lot going for it!
How to Make Brussels Sprouts and Eggs Breakfast Hash
- Dice the shallots and pears, and shred the Brussels sprouts. If you need it, check out my post on how to make shredded Brussels sprouts at home with a knife.
- Heat the butter and olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots, cook for a few minutes, then add the Brussels sprouts and pears. Cook until tender.
- Make wells with the back of a spoon in the hash. Crack eggs into the wells.
- Turn on the broiler to high, and transfer the skillet to the center rack of the oven. Cook for 1 to 3 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Enjoy!
- Since this Brussels sprouts and eggs hash is finished in the oven, be sure to cook it in an oven-safe skillet. This is the cast iron skillet that I like to use. Alternatively, if you don’t have an oven-safe pan, you can use a large skillet with a lid. When you crack the eggs into the wells, cover the skillet, and keep cooking the hash on the stove until the eggs are ready.
- To save time, look for pre-shredded Brussels sprouts (available at most grocery stores).
- Possible additions include cheese or chopped bacon, but I think it’s pretty delicious as is! I like to enjoy one of my Spiced Oat and Butternut Squash Muffins on the side too.
- This dish is best served right away, as leftovers don’t keep very well.
