Skillet Breakfast Hash

Swap out the traditional potatoes for shredded cabbage in this detox-friendly hash.
Skillet Breakfast Hash

Shredded cabbage is a great substitute for potato hash browns. It becomes tender like potatoes but is much lower in fast-digesting carbohydrates, plus it’s loaded with essential vitamins and minerals for a more nutrient-dense meal. Not only is this dish properly combined to help streamline your digestion, but it also delivers vital nutrients like vitamins B6, C, and K.

  • Makes 2-4 servings
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 1 tbs. butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 small head of green cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to 4 eggs
  • 2 oz. raw goat cheddar, shredded (optional)
  • Freshly chopped chives, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large, deep, ovensafe skillet, melt the butter over medium heat on the stove and sauté the onion and bell pepper until they start to soften, about five minutes. Add the cabbage, salt, and a few grinds of black pepper, and cook another 10 minutes, until everything is tender.
Crack the eggs directly on top of the cooked vegetables in the skillet. Sprinkle with the cheese, and bake in the oven until the whites are cooked, five to 10 minutes. If you prefer runny yolks, check on the eggs starting at five minutes; for firmer yolks, let the eggs cook for the entire 10 minutes.
Garnish with a sprinkling of fresh chives and serve warm.
Tip: Goat's-milk cheese is a hypoallergenic alternative to cow's milk: Its protein structure is ­significantly different.
Tip: Shredded cabbage is bulky when it's fresh, but will wilt as it cooks.
