Chilli Garlic Sausage and Potato Hash

Chilli Garlic Sausage and Potato Hash

I thought I would write up one of my easiest and most used recipes, as it always proves to be immensely satisfying in our household and a great way to use up a bunch of stuff from the fridge too! Chilli garlic sausage potato hash. This recipe is great because you can totally make it your own, and I tend to vary it pretty much every time I cook it to keep things interesting, using sweet potatoes and different vegetables for veggie/vegan alternatives.

You really don’t need much!

Chilli Garlic Sausage and Potato Hash | Serves 2-3 | 20 mins approx


  • Half bag new potatoes / 1 large baking potato, diced
  • 2 Lincolnshire sausages
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Half bag spinach
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • Crushed chilli flakes
  • Paprika


  1. Boil cubed potatoes for 8-10 minutes.
  2.  Whilst waiting, crush your garlic cloves and put one aside. Cut the sausages into quarters, cutting each quarter in half. Roll the sausage meat in crushed garlic and chilli, forming into a ball. Repeat until you have 16 sausage balls.thumb_IMG_2024_1024
  3. Chop the red onion and fry for 3-4 minutes, adding the remaining clove of garlic and frying for a further minute.
  4. Drain the potatoes using a colander and add to the pan. Fry for a further 5 minutes, turning them over occasionally. I like to coat mine in paprika at this stage!
  5. Add the sausage and fry until brown.
  6. Chop the yellow pepper into chunks and stir into the hash mix. Add half a bag of spinach and stir until wilted. If you like a bit of heat to your meals, you could add a sprinkle of chilli flakes into the pan on top of the seasoned sausage. Otherwise, season with salt and pepper.
  7. That’s it! Your potato hash is ready and good to eat.


I make this a lot when I have leftover meat or vegetables that need to be used up soon, or on evenings where I really don’t have the energy to spend too much time cooking. There are so many interesting flavours in this dish, with a fiery kick coming through from the chilli and paprika, and you can switch the potatoes over for sweet potatoes too – see this sweet potato and herby sausage hash below from my Instagram a little while back:
