Sunshine Hash Recipe
  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 40 minutes


‘This is perfect campsite food,’ says cookery author Ali Ray. ‘You can make it your own with whatever you have left over from last night’s meal, or what you can get your hands on in the site shop.’

  1. Over a medium heat, cook your sausages in a deep frying pan for 10 minutes. Then remove from the pan and put to one side. Wipe the pan with a piece of kitchen roll.
  2. Chop the potatoes into small cubes. Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the frying pan over a low to medium heat. Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes or until they are golden in colour.
  3. Add in the pieces of bacon and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the chopped tomatoes and cook until they just start to soften, but don’t let them go too mushy. Stir in the chopped spring onions and finely chopped garlic if using. Then add the sausages. Season well with salt and pepper.
  5. Push the hash to one side of the pan and add another tablespoon of oil. Crack two eggs in the space, and fry until they are cooked to your liking.
  6. Divide the hash between four plates, and pop an egg on top of two of them. Return the pan to the heat and fry the remaining eggs for the last two plates.
  7. Serve with ketchup.
