Smoked Trout Hash (or how to use up those storage potatoes and onions)

A breakfast to keep you going until lunch.

Description: Smoked trout hash with a sunny side up egg, english muffins with chèvre and sriracha and a side of sauerkraut

Serves 2


2 potatoes-diced (Groundwork Farm, Kennebunk Market)

4 kale leaves or 2 generous handfuls of baby kale (or other early green)

1 onion (Grassland Farm, Skowhegan Market)

3 eggs (One Drop Farm, Skowhegan Market)

4 Tbs. butter

6 oz. smoked trout (skinned and shredded) (Ducktrap)

2 Tbs. heavy cream or milk (Goranson Farm, Portland, Damariscotta and Bath Markets)

3 oz. chèvre (Appleton Creamery, Bath, Belfast, Camden, Damariscotta, Orono & Rockland Markets)

2 side servings of sauerkraut (Thirty Acre Farm, Portland Market)

Garlic (storage- Groundwork Farm, Kennebunk Market), salt, pepper and herbs to taste

2 English muffins (homemade)

Sriracha- to taste (China!!!)

1. Heat butter in a cast iron skillet over medium to high heat. Add potatoes; cook, flipping potatoes as needed, until lightly browned… about 10 minutes.

2. Chop and add onions to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften, about 10 minutes.

3. Beat 1 egg, heavy cream, 2 oz. of chevre and garlic in a bowl until mixed. Reduce heat of skillet and add mixture, stirring rapidly.  Once mixture is added in, increase heat back to medium-high. Add shredded smoked trout at this time.

4. Flip hash every couple of minutes. Cook for an additional 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.

5.  Reduce heat to medium-low. Add kale and stir in as necessary. This is a good time to crack those eggs and fry them in a separate frying pan. Pop those english muffins into the toaster at this time, as well.

4. Divide hash, eggs and english muffins between 2 plates. Add chèvre and sriracha to english muffins. Spoon a healthy serving of sauerkraut or kimchi on the side.
