Chorizo Hash Browns

I love pancakes and waffles as much as the next girl (and crepes! and french toast!), but most of the time, I’m a savory breakfast eater. Of course, if I can get a savory breakfast followed by a pancake in place of a piece of toast, then it’s a win all around (take note, restaurants: you should all offer this option). One of the reasons for my love of savory breakfast foods is chorizo. Because when it comes to breakfast, there is nothing greater than chilaquiles with chorizo. Except for maybe huevos rancheros with chorizo. Or an omelet or skillet with chorizo. What is boils down to is I WANT TO EAT ALL THE CHORIZO.

So, these hash browns. Basically, they are shredded potatoes with chorizo mixed in. In other words, you can’t really go wrong. The idea actually stemmed from these chorizo-mushroom-potato tacos, when Zachary said they tasted a lot like hash browns. Turns out I’m not the only one interested in chorizo hash browns, and a quick google search found this recipe. We love to make hash browns on the weekend and these are a great twist on standard hash browns that are really not much more difficult or time-consuming.

Are you a savory or sweet breakfast person? And more, importantly, what can I add chorizo to that I haven’t already? :)

I am a savory breakfast person, like you! Luckily my husband is sweet, so I steal a bite of his pancake after I am done! These look so delicious! Have you tried chorizo in meatballs yet? I have a post for chorizo & pork meatballs on my blog, yum!

Not in meatballs, but I have a couple of burger recipes with chorizo in them, and they are obviously our favorites, hah! I’ll have to try the meatballs.

Man these look good Elly. Chorizo really is the best sausage. I am a savory AND sweet breakfast person all around, which means that I’m probably just fatter than you. hahaha!

I am both a savory and sweet breakfast eater. My two faves are eggs benedict and french toast.
We are having chorizo with oven roasted potatoes and scrambled eggs with sour cream for dinner tonight. Yum!

When I go out for brunch or breakfast, I almost always go savory! Chorizo is great, so full of salty spicy flavor, that I can’t imagine it not going well with anything! But especially delicious with hash browns.

We just had papas y chorizo tacos for dinner a few nights ago-one of our favorites! Love that this is basically the breakfast version of that… awesome!

OMG. Eric would go crazy for these. Chorizo + potatoes is one of his favorite combinations. Since I can never decide if I want a savory or sweet breakfast, I always order the opposite of what Eric gets when we’re out. That way I can have a few bites of whichever I didn’t get.

I love the idea of adding chorizo to hash browns! I also “WANT TO EAT ALL THE CHORIZO.” Seriously, yes. I added it to pizza one time in place of sausage, with onions and peppers on top as well. Oh my oh my. Try that. :)
