This week I got to thinking about parsnip. Why? Who knows why things float through my brain flow, but I intuitively felt I needed to give parsnip a chance this week. Let it shine. Plus I think it’s another one of those vegetables that many have never tried or even heard of. And I for one like to try new things, I am always hungry for change. So I wanted to begin this week with breakfast. I love eggs in the morning. What goes better with eggs, but a nice hearty hash? Here is what I created.
Hearty Parsnip Hash
- 4 oz. Sausage
- 3 slices crispy, chopped bacon
- 2 parsnips, cut into tiny cubes
- 1 diced small onion
- 1 diced red bell pepper
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- Salt and pepper
- Italian seasoning
- Grated grass-fed cheese (I used Sand Crest Jack from our local Swiss Connection)
Let’s Make it Happen. Begin by preparing your vegetables. Peel and chop that parsnip into tiny cubes. Dice the pepper and onion. Move on to the meat. Brown up that sausage. Fry up that bacon. Add the remaining vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, cayenne, and Italian seasoning. Let it saute and get nice and tender. Cover for ten minutes or so, opening on occasion to stir. Remove from the fire. Scoop it onto a plate, and grate some beautiful grass-fed cheese onto the top. That’s it!
