Mince and Vege Hash

I am always on the look out for something different for breakfast, as scrambled eggs most mornings can start to get a little bit boring. As I was making lasagne last night and had a bit too much mince, I set some uncooked mince and chopped veges aside for use in the morning. This way I only had to do prep once, and the lasagne barely noticed it was missing anything. Served with a fried or poached egg on top, it’s a very nutritious way to start the morning. I have served it alongside freshly brewed coffee with almond milk, making this a paleo meal – as it contains no dairy.



I was only making for two people, so I didn’t have to use much. You’ll need about 1/4 cup of each ingredient, unless otherwise stated.

Diced sweet potato
Diced carrot
Sliced cabbage
Sliced zucchini
Diced onion
Mince (I used beef, but lamb or pork would work too)
1 tspn thyme
1 tbsp oil
Worcestershire sauce
2 eggs



Heat oil in a large frying pan. Sauté onions for a couple of minutes until soft, then add mince. Fry until nice and brown. Add the carrot and sweet potato and cook until soft and nicely browned. Add the cabbage, zucchini, thyme and worcestershire sauce and cook until vegetables are done.

Meanwhile, fry the eggs to your liking. To plate, place the meat and vege hash on a dish, with the fried egg on top. Season with salt and pepper. An excellent start to the day.
