In the Kitchen – Greenock Shishito and Sausage Breakfast Hash

In the rush of peppers at the end of the season, I ended up with a ton of shishito peppers, most of them from one prolific plant.  These were a bit bigger than the finger-size fruits I like to saute in olive oil with garlic, salt and pepper.  I tried to stuff them, but they are pretty thin-walled and tend to rip.

So what can you do with a pile of large shishitos?

Make hash!

I’m a big believer that almost anything tastes good with peppers, onions and mushrooms.

Today, I was out of mushrooms, but I sliced up an onion, and crumbled a half pound of breakfast pork sausage roll into a large skillet.  I sliced about 20 peppers into rings about half an inch thick, removing most of the seeds.

I then put the peppers in with the sausage and onions with about a tablespoon of olive oil, and sauteed everything until the sausage was cooked.

That’s it.  I spooned it onto a plate and had a great breakfast dish.  The sausage seasoning complimented the shishitos perfectly.

Denise and I shared the skillet and soon there was nothing left.

So, now I know what to do with my overactive shishitos, and I can’t wait for next year’s crop.  And I’ll throw in a few sliced mushrooms!

    Looks really good – are they a hot or sweet pepper? Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party!

      Shishitos are funny. It’s said that one in ten are hot. If so, they’re not very hot. May have something to do with cross pollination with hotter peppers

      This is easy to make and tastes great. Wish I would’ve come up with this sooner before all my peppers were gone.
