Let’s embrace the simplicity of this sheet pan chorizo breakfast hash for those busy mornings. It makes a fantastic freezer meal, and is hearty for hungry bellies!
Hands down, this sheet pan recipe tops my list of breakfasts I’m most excited to pull out of the freezer when baby girl arrives (any day now, I’m 6 days past my due date!).
The chorizo spice blend is so interesting and different than anything I already make. And I just love that the potatoes, veggies and sausage all bake up together on one pan together, keeping it sooooo easy.
Ever since I tasted authentic chorizo I’ve been obsessed. At our first house one Christmas our next door neighbor gifted homemade, authentic chorizo. We didn’t know each other than well, but she sure knew my love language of food! Guys, it was AMAZING. I wish I had her recipe to recreate that exact chorizo again.
Alas, I created my own spice blend to emulate those flavors. I researched tons of chorizo recipes, searched my spice drawer and came up with something I’m really excited about. The combination of heat from ancho chile pepper and warming spices like cinnamon and clove bring interest and something a little different to the dish. I love my sheet pan chorizo breakfast hash topped with a drippy egg, cultured sour cream and green onions! Oh and if you’ve got a perfectly ripe avocado, throw some slices of that on there too!
