Pulled Pork Breakfast Hash

Pulled Pork Breakfast Hash | A Happy Food Dance

Sauteed peppers and onions and smoky pulled pork piled high over sourdough toast and finished with a poached egg- this is the best breakfast ever and made with leftovers! I make this recipe so often because who doesn't like pulled pork anything.  This is the same pork I use in my Crockpot Pulled Pork Sliders.  My work days are pretty long – plus a long commute means easy dinners are a must! To make the pulled pork, simply rub it down with seasoning the night before and then the next morning throw it in the crockpot- yeah, that’s it!  You come home to the most intoxicating smell and a super easy and delicious dinner which makes tons of leftovers. So what do you do?!?!  I make these Pulled Pork Cookie Sheet Nachos and this breakfast hash - all.the.time.  If you follow me on Instagram, I even ate it this week on top of a kale salad. For the hash, simply toss your favorite … [Read More...]

I use ricotta in quite a few items… like this and this and this. …
