  • Total Time 40 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • ½ pkg Sensations by Compliments Cracked Peppercorn Seasoned
    Butter & Canola Oil, divided
    50 g
  • ½ baguette, cut into bite-size cubes or pieces
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 Italian sausages, casings removed and discarded
  • ½ lb ground beef 250 g
  • 5 oz 1 pkg baby kale 142 g
  • ¾ tsp salt, divided 4 mL
  • ½ tsp pepper, divided 2 mL
  • ¾ cup cornmeal 175 mL
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour 75 mL
  • 1 tsp baking powder 5 mL
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled 30 mL
  • 1¼ cups corn kernels (from 2 to 3 cobs) 300 mL
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  • Step 1

    To make hash, melt half the seasoned butter in large skillet over medium heat. Stir in baguette pieces and cook, turning often, 5 to 6 min., until golden. Remove from skillet. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Add remaining seasoned butter to skillet; stir in onion and cook until golden. Add sausage meat and ground beef. Cook 5 to 7 min. until meat is browned; breaking up into small pieces with back of wooden spoon. Stir in kale and cook until wilted, about 2 min. Mix in reserved baguette pieces, ½ tsp (2 mL) salt and ¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper. Cook another 2 to 3 min., until warmed through.

  • Step 3

    To make corn fritters, in large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking powder and remaining ¼ tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper. In separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk and melted butter. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients; mix until just combined. Fold in corn kernels and green onions.

  • Step 4

    Heat large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add fritter batter to skillet in ¼ cup (60 mL) portions. Cook 3 min. per side, until golden brown. Serve with warm hash.

Tip

To make hash and fritters on barbecue, instead of using a non-stick pan, use cast-iron skillet and set on grill preheated to high.
