  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • Eggs, cooked to order, for serving
  • Cranberry-Ginger Chutney, to garnish, recipe follows
  • Rosemary Sausage:
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage, or 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Peel, seed, and chop the squash. Distribute evenly on a baking pan and drizzle lightly with oil. Bake until soft to the touch, about 20 minutes. Remove and cool.

  • Cook the Rosemary Sausage in a lightly oiled pan over medium heat, stirring often, until browned. Add the apples, onions and peppers. Cook, stirring regularly, for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the squash. Saute until the squash is lightly browned, 1 to 2 more minutes.

  • Cook eggs separately as desired.

  • Plate the squash hash, drizzle with Cranberry-Ginger Chutney and top with eggs!

Rosemary Sausage:
  • Mix the pork with the fennel, garlic, sage, salt, pepper and rosemary well by hand.

Cranberry-Ginger Chutney:
  • In a medium pot, boil the cranberries and 1 cup water until the berries start to pop, 5 to 7 minutes. Simmer on medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Add the sugar, garlic, ginger, lemon zest and salt, and simmer for another 20 minutes.
