Crawfish boil season is in full swing right now. As the season progresses and early crawfish cravings begin to become sated, we sometimes find ourselves with a few leftovers. I like to remove the tails and refrigerate until the next day, then go ahead and peel them for recipes like this. 

Top the hash with a fried egg and serve with toast.

Spicy crawfish tails might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of breakfast, but they are the perfect protein for this hearty skillet breakfast hash. If you run across a few pieces of leftover sausage, go ahead and dice those up to add as well.

You can dice up whole potatoes, white or yellow, or just make it easier by picking up a bag of frozen diced hash brown potatoes at the market. We plate by topping a mound of hash with a soft fried egg. Serve with toast or a biscuit.
