Healthy Breakfast Hash Recipe (dairy & gluten-free)
Full of flavor, this healthy breakfast hash recipe is the perfect way to kick off the weekend! Dairy-free, gluten-free, and paleo option. This egg-based breakfast hash is comforting and filling.
Throughout the week rely on easy, make-ahead breakfast recipes. However, over the weekend we take our mornings a bit slower. We snuggle longer, we make a bigger breakfast we simply enjoy more.
And this healthy breakfast hash recipe is one of our weekend staples! The truth is, you really can’t eff up breakfast hash. Sautee a bunch of your favorite ingredients until crispy, add some salsa, and top with eggs.
It’s just that simple.

Ingredients & Substitutions
This healthy breakfast recipe is made up of vegetables, potatoes, and chickpeas.
The vegetables give it a nice healthy boost whereas the potatoes and chickpeas give it a more filling feeling.
However, just because it’s listed doesn’t mean it’s written in stone! When it comes to both the peppers and the mushrooms, they can easily be interchanged with other vegetables you have on hand.
For instance, sometimes we use:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Finely chopped cauliflower
Basically, a good rule of thumb is to use what you have on hand.
We love adding chickpeas to our breakfast hash because I find the help fill us up. However, if you don’t have them on hand, just use more potatoes.
Note: if you like a bit of a kick, adding one tablespoon of jalapeno makes for a super tasty dish as well! Add it into the onions when you saute them.
How To Make The Breakfast Hash Recipe Paleo
If you’re looking to make this breakfast hash recipe paleo, simply swap the regular potatoes for sweet potatoes!
While regular potatoes are not considered paleo, sweet potatoes are (learn more about potatoes on the paleo diet here). Likewise, remove the chickpeas and replace them with more sweet potatoes also.
Sweet potatoes will give this breakfast hash recipe a sweeter flavor and they’re just as tasty.
How To Cook The Eggs
In this recipe, the eggs are cooked last and in a separate pan. While you can move the hash mixture over and cook the eggs in the same pan, I prefer to do them separately.
However, remember that there’s no perfect way to cook eggs! We do our eggs mostly over-easy (for myself or my hubby) and fully cooked for the girls.
Thus, cook the eggs to your liking and top the plates with the last.
Note: we’ve also scrambled our eggs into the hash mixture as well! It’s super tasty but doesn’t look as pretty 😉
Topping The Breakfast Hash
After everything is ready to go on plates, you can customize your healthy breakfast a bit further if you like! We normally put a spread on the table and let everyone pick and choose.
Some of our staples are:
- More salsa
- Cashew sour cream
- Green onion
Regardless, make the recipe your own by switching it up and using what you enjoy the most.
- 1 Yukon potato, peeled and diced
- 7 mushrooms, sliced or diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbs avocado oil
- 2 tbs sweet onion, chopped
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup bell peppers, diced
- ¾ cup chickpeas, cooked
- ¼ cup salsa of choice
- 4 eggs
How To Make It
In a large skillet, heat the avocado oil slightly over medium heat. Once heated, add in the chopped onion and garlic. Cook until clear.
Toss in the peppers, mushrooms, potatoes, and sea salt. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the mushrooms are releasing a lot of juice.
Remove the cover and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes. Add in the chickpeas and salsa. Mix to combine.
Continue to cook slightly higher than medium and use a silicone spatula to stir the hash and prevent anything from sticking.
Meanwhile, grease a pan and cook the eggs to your liking.
When the eggs are done and the breakfast hash is crispy, portion out to plates and enjoy!
