This recipe is inspired by the dish that was made for brunch on Something for the Weekend. Since I had all the ingredients required, I whipped this up in a flash, well almost and it was the most delicious quickie meal ever. A dish with a fried onions, crispy bits of potato, hints of spicy sausage and oozy eggs, a perfect brunch dish (great for hangovers).
Nduja is a soft spicy salami from Calabria which is made from offal and lots of chilli and it works brilliantly in making a delicious potato hash. Alternatively, you can use the Spanish Sobrasada as it is quite similar. To make it even better, break some eggs on top of the hash to make a full on Brunch dish.
When the nduja melts on cooking, the flavour of the oil seeps into the onions and potatoes giving it a deep savoury flavour. Totally delicious.
You can buy nduja at some of the bigger Waitrose, at the Calabrian stall in Borough Market, any Italian delis or online.
If you have never tried nduja before, track some down and try one of these recipes :
