Your New Favorite Way To Eat Brussels Sprouts

Breakfast is one of those special things. Breakfast is one of those meals best lingered over with extra coffee and super fresh orange juice.
It usually requires a weekend morning and a little time and someone you generally like to high-five in life. When those things come together, here’s the deal: make mushrooms, shred brussels sprouts, and cook some eggs. First though, make a big pot of coffee.
I love making this breakfast on a weekend morning because mushrooms take some time to cook. Mushrooms need some coaxing, heat, and salt to melt into deliciousness. All that mushroom cooking time is made for coffee sipping, brussels-sprout slicing, and easy conversations. It’s living, and it feels really good!

1. Wipe mushrooms with a moist paper towel to remove any excess dirt. Slice mushrooms into quarters. Set aside.
2. Rinse Brussels sprouts. Slice sprouts into ribbons by thinly slicing horizontally from top to bottom. Set aside.
3. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until translucent and just browned, about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook down until mushrooms are softened and beginning to brown. Add garlic, and cook for one minute more.
4. Add brussels sprout ribbons, and increase heat to medium-high. Toss to combine and cook until Brussels and mushrooms are softened and extra browned. Once browned and cooked well, remove from the heat, add lemon juice, and toss.
5. In a separate sauce pan heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Crack two eggs into the pan and fry for 30 seconds. Cover the pan and cook to desired doneness. I leave my eggs for about 4 minutes for over-medium.
6. Divide hash between two bowls. Place one egg on top of each hash bowl and serve immediately.
