It’s a great day for a holiday, don’t you think?

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans! Today is one of my favorite holidays as a foodie, for obvious reasons – it’s all about eating!! I love taking a classic recipe and getting creative with it – putting my own spin on it, and really making it my own. I can’t wait to be able to share those kinds of recipes with my future kids and grandkids, and maybe one day in the future, they’ll call my recipes classics.

Of course, Thanksgiving is an all-day event, spent mostly in the kitchen and over the stove. But before you toss that turkey in your oven, why not treat your family to an equally impressive breakfast? This Kielbasa Breakfast Hash is easy, filling, and delicious, and will take no more than 30 minutes to make, giving you that much more time to prep for your big dinner!

Since taking these photos in late October, I have made this recipe 4 times for breakfast. I’m absolutely serious!! My husband is really big on breakfast, and it almost always has to include eggs in some way. The first time I presented this to him, he was pleasantly surprised, since my breakfasts are usually more carb-leaning (pancakes, French toast, & crepes, mostly.) It’s a very filling and flavorful breakfast, and contains plenty of nutrients to get you through your morning.

I have to note that, every time I’ve made it, the ingredients have been different, with the exception of the kielbasa – that protein has always remained constant, which is why I gave it this name. So feel free to stray from my original recipe, and add in different cuts of potato, more veggies, or even trying turkey kielbasa or chicken sausage.

No matter how varied you make it, I promise it will be totally satisfying!
