There may be no better breakfast duo than sausage and potatoes. They’re the Hall and Oates of breakfast. The Starsky and Hutch of Brunch.

Make sure you go for a fully cooked sausage-style Portuguese sausage here (Silva is a great brand), not Spanish or Mexican chorizo. They are all wildly different. The Spanish version is cured and ready to eat (think charcuterie). Mexican chorizo is fresh, raw and often loose.

This can be a simple rustic breakfast, the centerpiece of a bougie brunch, or Sunday meal prep dish for busy work week.
