Is there anything more satisfying than a hearty breakfast hash? With crispy potatoes, fresh vegetables, and a nice fried egg, you can't go wrong with this filling morning meal. But this Italian hash takes things to the next level, with chicken sausage, banana peppers, kale, and Asiago cheese. And, of course, that picture-perfect fried egg really makes this dish.

This breakfast has all the flavor of an Italian sandwich with peppers and onions, but thanks to the chicken sausage, as well as the additions like kale and eggs, it's a way healthier alternative to a greasy, carb-heavy sandwich at a deli. Instead, this Italian hash is filled with nutrients, along with healthy fats and carbs. And with 25 grams of protein and four grams of fiber in each serving, you'll have plenty of energy to take on the morning ahead.

If your preferred breakfasts lean more toward the savory side, this hash and eggs recipe could be a great addition to your rotation. It's a flavorful and healthy breakfast, and it's hearty enough to fuel you for all of the day's activities.
